Ford makes infotainment smarter
With the next generation of its infotainment system Sync, the car manufacturer Ford is breaking new ground: The system can be personalized, it uses Machine Learning to learn the driver's habits, and it can be kept up to date via OTA update.

The Ford developers have also worked on improving the use of the electrical infrastructure and, above all, have improved the accuracy of range prediction. In addition, numerous relevant categories of information were incorporated into the infotainment system. For example, the system provides information on where and when the car can or must be recharged on the road. The Mach-E is the first Ford model ever to improve the accuracy of range predictions via cloud connectivity. The "Intelligent Range" technology helps to avoid unplanned charging stops. The calculations also include previous driving behavior, weather forecasts and data from other Ford electric vehicles to provide a more accurate indication of remaining range.

Ford has contracted the service provider TomTom for the real-time display of traffic data. The traffic data is updated every 30 seconds.

The Mach E is considered the most visible symbol of Ford's electrification strategy. The company plans to introduce 17 new battery electric models in Europe by the end of 2021.
