Ford got a chance to show off this weekend. The company was one of ten invited to display patented technology at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in the nation’s capitol. The 2-day Innovation Festival was hosted by the Smithsonian Instititute and the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Patent and Trademark Office. The festival allowed the public to see and interact with some of the most cutting edge technology being developed by public, private, and academic institutions. Ford’s display featured the company’s inflatable seatbelt. Bill Coughlin, president and CEO of Ford Global Technologies, says, “Ford has a rich history of developing industry-first technology, and for that effort, and to be recognized by such a prestigious institution, is a great honor for our team.”
