Ford's Bay Watch

A new information system being tested by Ford will eliminate the biggest hassle of urban driving – finding somewhere to park. A simple telephone call will pinpoint empty parking spaces and then reserve them.

Thirty Fords are being equipped to test the system in Cologne, Germany, where sensors have been fitted into bays in car parks to monitor whether they're being used or not. A computer records all the information, and drivers can phone to tell it to reserve the most convenient space. Car parks are also wired to recognise vehicles when they arrive.

A man's worth can't be judged by how much money he got, or by the actions that he takes to better himself understand?
