To reduce the risk associated with high-speed police accidents and the potential for fuel leaks that accompany them, Ford has announced that it is developing a fire suppression system as a factory option for the 2005 Crown Victoria Police Interceptors. Built in conjunction with Aerojet, a U.S. military supplier, the system determines the optimal time for deploying the fire suppression material by measuring post-impact vehicle movement using advanced electronics and on-board sensors. More information can be found at www.cvpi.com, which is dedicated to improving communication between law enforcement personnel, independent experts, component suppliers, and Ford employees.
Determining the quantities and location of sensors in an Internet of Things application requires a thorough problem statement and a clear vision of success, an expert will tell engineers at the upcoming Design & Manufacturing Show in Minneapolis.
