This new technology appears to be promising for reducing motor vehicle crash related injuries and fatalities. It is also aimed at protecting children, a nice change from most technologies that are designed for adult passengers.
Kudos to Ford for moving technology ahead in the area of child passenger safety! Hopefully, this feature will be widely available and, if proven effective, widely accepted by consumers.
I do wish the video pushed more for passing the 5 step test, than the arbitrary age of 8 though.
