Ford and ADT form venture to make vehicle security products


DETROIT » Ford and security company ADT have formed a joint venture that will help businesses protect vehicles and expensive equipment they carry from theft.

The first product from the venture called Canopy is a system that uses cameras, radar, global positionin­g and artificial intelligen­ce to spot a potential thief and notify ADT, which will monitor the feeds and notify the customer or authoritie­s if needed.

The system will be offered as accessory on Ford and other top-selling vehicles starting next year. The company expects to integrate it in factory vehicles and offer it to other manufactur­ers over time.
