FYI: Not Your Regular Car Mat

Automotive giant Ford has thoughtfully reinvented the car floor mat to help drivers and passengers negotiate formerly inaccessible areas. Notably, the mat—which turns into a lightweight portable smart ramp—can be easily carried on the back of a wheelchair. Each time the device is used, the mat gathers data on its location and highlights places where access needs to be improved. The data is then posted on an app and a website, and local authorities are flagged when action is needed. Source: Ford
