IFA 2011 – Ford adds MyKey restriction technology to its cars

Ford MyKey

Car manufacturer Ford will be revealing a new kind of technology for its European vehicles called MyKey at IFA in Berlin today.

MyKey will allow car owners to program a special key for their vehicles, which then enables them to activate a number of restrictions, such as top speeds and audio volume.

The technology has been devised in response to the high numbers of accidents among young drivers and will be aimed at parents who are keen to control how their teens use their family vehicles.

It’s a bit of a controversial topic in many ways, shouldn’t we really be teaching young people how to drive responsibly and follow the rules of the road instead of banning them from doing certain things? I suppose in an ideal world, yes, but there will always be those who want to bend the rules a little and the MyKey will hopefully stop them from doing anything too reckless.

Regardless of your stance on the MyKey and the principles behind it, it’s sure to give worried parents peace of mind, so maybe it’s not all that bad or totalitarian.

MyKey technology is already a success in the US and will be added to certain Ford models in 2012.
