New Ford display "may help those with poor eyesight"

New car interiors being developed by Ford may benefit people whose eyesight is beginning to fail, it has been claimed.

According to Smart Planet, the car manufacturer's new vehicle interiors will feature displays which can be adjusted to make dials and instrumentation bigger.

This will subsequently make it much easier for people with poor eyesight to see the readings, by making subtle adjustments.

"Fonts will be thicker and up to 40 per cent wider on interior displays. The change will be implemented in the Ford Edge and Ford Explorer models as early as next year. The new displays will be rolled out in other models after that," the website said.

It comes after car manufacturer Subaru launched its new Eyesight technology, which scans pedestrians ahead to improve safety for both motorists and other road users.
