DANGER Autonomous Ford Approachin­g


Ford has announced they are looking for partners to build autonomous vehicles with by 2021 – but you won’t be buying an F150. They will be looking to create an electric hybrid vehicle for service industries (taxi, delivery, ride-sharing) and will initially operate in high demand (read dense urban) areas with extensive, detailed route mapping (again – sounds like big city). They are currently working with Domino's Pizza in an industry-first collaborat­ion to understand the role that self-driving vehicles can play in the service industry.

Bottom line - your trails, small farms and work sites will be avoided by robot cars for now.
