Ford’s New Bed Prevents Your Partner from Encroaching Sleeping Space on Bed

Ford Brings Its Inventive Lane-Keeping Car Tech to The bed

Automaker Ford is looking for new ways to utilize its latest technology for other applications. Focused on couples, they have recently introduced a prototype bed that automatically maintains the sleeping position of a person so that he/she doesn’t disturb the other one sleeping alongside.

Anthony Ireson, director, Marketing Communications, Ford Europe said,

Lane-Keeping Aid in our cars can make driving easier and more comfortable. We thought that showing how similar thinking could be applied to a bed, would be a great way to highlight to drivers a technology that they might not previously have been aware of.

Inspired by Ford’s own Lane-Keeping technology for cars, this bed assist partners to remain on their side of the bed through the night.

It doesn’t work by a physical barrier instead through a rotational movement similar to a conveyor belt. There are built-in pressure sensors that automatically detect when a partner encroaching over the other partner’s sleeping space. Next task is of the integrated conveyor belt that gently slides away from the space-hogging partner back to his/her side of the bed, cool isn’t it?
