Ford Focus pothole detection technology


Ford’s CCD (Continuously Controlled Damping) technology, an option on the all-new Focus, monitors suspension, body, steering and braking inputs every 2ms, and adjusts damping responses accordingly. The system can also detect the edge of potholes and adjust the damper to minimize wheel drop, minimizing the impact with the opposite side of the pothole. With the front wheels giving the rears a little more advance warning, the rear suspension can soften the blow further. Watch the system in action
