May 2013, Southborough, MA - Cool cars command respect. Always have, always will. Our collective love affair with cars, from classic sports cars, street racers, muscle cars to luxury coupes, has ensued for decades. Whether it's a Maybach, Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari Testarossa, Pink Cadillac or Mustang Sally is beside the point. For many, it's sparking that emotional connection with our cars that really counts. We love them, baby them, wax them, detail them and care for them. Now, with the new, groundbreaking introduction of the SAFE Car, consumers can protect their "wheels" in ways never thought possible before.
The SAFE Car, empowered with FST21 technology, provides an unprecedented level of control, convenience and security that's in keeping with the newest lifestyle and technological capabilities. It is the brainchild of SAFE (Strategically Armored and Fortified Environments) a trailblazing “next generation” provider of custom security solutions that are architecturally based, aesthetically discreet and completely scalable for homes, automobiles, offices and super yachts.
SAFE, based in L.A. and founded by industry icon Al Corbi, forged a relationship with FST21 in 2012. They began incorporating FST21's SafeRise In-Motion Identification technology - which uses a fusion of biometric and analytic technologies that include facial recognition, behavior analysis, voice recognition, LPR, RFID and more - into their residential and commercial projects. SAFE had already created the prototype for the SAFE Car, an advanced car security solution, as it would be a natural extension for its clients’ security needs. The car was being designed to allow the owner to maintain complete control of their residential or other properties while on the go. In addition, the SAFE Car would have its own secure features that could be controlled by the owner from any location and be the first of its kind to offer real-time contact and communications with the vehicle. The car’s situational awareness and control system (SAC) from SAFE would link audio, video and mechanical systems seamlessly to protect itself and its owner/occupants with manual or pre-programmed features.
Although the SAFE Car had been in development for several years, it was the superior technologies offered by FST21 that put the pedal to the metal in making the SAFE Car a reality. And the realities of what it can do are a car lover's dream.
SAFE Cars are essentially roaming WiFi hotspots that afford their owners unprecedented access to the vehicle and its functions. Most importantly, SAFE Cars provide the peace of mind that comes from knowing your car can not be stolen, who is in it, where it is, how fast it is traveling, and more. SAFE Cars keep you in total control. Yes, you can stop the car remotely, enable the doors to lock, even send blasts of smoke into the interior to subdue an unwelcome intruder!
Although the technology and equipment in the car is seamless to the eye (surveillance cameras, for instance, are embedded into the dash), the SAFE Car delivers the ultimate in security and controls with features that include:
