Ford Launches Safety Insights to Help Cities Reduce Car Crashes

At Ford, we are committed to working with cities to help make our streets safe. That’s why we are officially launching an innovative new tool to aid cities– one that uses connected vehicle data and artificial intelligence to help them build smart, safe transportation systems.

Safety Insights is a newly available web-based software tool for transportation planners and engineers from Ford that provides a detailed overview of road safety in cities. Using Safety Insights — which synchronizes crash data from multiple sources and combines it with Ford’s own connected vehicle data — city planners can identify streets and intersections that could be improved to increase safety. 

Ford recently teamed up with Freethink to highlight the potential of Safety Insights and showcase how it works. Freethink is a platform dedicated to covering the biggest ideas and most groundbreaking technology, so the development of Safety Insights marked a great opportunity to show how Ford is ushering in the future of mobility.
