UK approves first hands-free driving system

- Automobile - April 14, 2023

Britain became the first country in Europe to approve hands-free driving after giving the go-ahead to Ford’s BlueCruise technology for use on its motorways. The self-driving system uses five radars to track the position and speed of other vehicles, while a forward-facing camera detects lane markings and speed signs. The technology is only available on the pure electric 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E and costs £17.99 ($22.5) a month.
