(KGTV) — A curious story you may have seen claims Ford is developing a new app for pedestrians to download to help prevent Ford cars from running them over.
It's basically true.
Ford is developing an app that would run on people's phones.
If a person with that app comes into the path of a car using Ford's SYNC system, the driver will be alerted with dashboard graphics or sounds.
Ford planned to demo the app at a conference in Los Angeles.
No word how far away the technology can detect a potential victim.
