This data can then be sent to the Max Motor Dreams crib, which means babies can experience a specific trip that they may have become accustomed to. A speaker under the baby plays engine sounds.
For new parents who have had to resort to taking their restless baby on a vehicle ride to get him or her to sleep, Ford comes up with technology that simulates the ride from the comfort of home.
There's also an app that tracks your car's unique sounds and movements from your routes before sending them to the high-tech crib, making it more real. Now, Ford Motor Company is hoping to make bedtime a little easier on new parents. All it requires is that you go out for a night drive with their app open so it can record the cars movements and sound. The base of the crib slowly rocks from side to side, simulating the sensation of a moving vehicle.
New parents know that one of the easiest ways to put a toddler to sleep is by driving them around in a vehicle. You have to make an appointment to test drive a Ford in Spain, and once you complete the test drive, you'll be entered into a raffle. "But while a quick drive in the family auto can work wonders in getting baby off to sleep, the poor old parents still have to be awake and alert at the wheel", said Max Motor Dreams designer Alejandro López Bravo, of Spanish creative studio Espada y Santa Cruz, which produced the award-winning design.
According to Roadshow, Ford has only built one so far, but if there's enough demand for the smart crib, the automaker says it will consider a full production run in the future.
The Max Motor Dreams crib is not actually available to the public.
