Ford Invests In Order To Launch Its First Autonomous Car in 2021!
|   Monday, August 29, 2016
Ford has already set a date for the arrival of their first autonomous car, which will have no steering wheel or pedals.
Companies like Google take many years in testing autonomous cars. Well, it seems that the first manufacturer to launch a vehicle of such features is Ford; in alliance with the American technology giant, the two companies are set to develop these cars.

Thus, Ford announced plans of launching an autonomous car in 2021, which is intended for the carpooling and will lack both the steering wheel and pedals.

According to Mark Fields, CEO of Ford, the American company plans to continue investing in such innovation; they have been doing tests with this technology for about 10 years -and this year they plan to triple the vehicles for research in this field.

There will be 30 Ford Fusion Hybrid running through Michigan, California and Arizona. In addition, for 2017, the plan is the same, so the number of Ford self-test cars will triple again.

To continue moving forward, Ford also announced they will carry out the installation of a campus in Palo Alto Ford-Silicon Valley, USA, one of the world's technological areas for businesses involved in such activities.
The company has also planned investments and / or partnerships to continue progress in areas related to autonomous driving technologies, such as laser detection, or LIDAR, 3D maps, camera and radar sensors and algorithms.

In any case, the release for sale of such vehicles will not be easy at all, as each country will have to adapt their legislation to accommodate the traffic for such vehicle fleet.
