Google-Ford Partnership to Produce Driverless Cars

Google-Ford Partnership

Google-Ford Partnership

The new year is upon us, and seemingly full of upcoming technology innovations. One of the innovations that many companies are striving for is driverless cars. Although 2016 does seem promising for technology growth, driverless cars probably won’t be part of everyday life – yet.

Ford and Google have reportedly decided to collaborate on creating driverless cars, also referred to as autonomous vehicles. Many companies such as Apple, Tesla, and Nissan have already started test-driving prototypes. However, the partnership of Google and Ford may be the best push for autonomous vehicles.

Google and Ford both possess things that the other one needs. Google has the technology, particularly how it relates to autonomous controls. Ford has been creating vehicles for over 100 years, so they have a lot of knowledge on the structure and needs of cars.

Despite the power team, there will still be challenges in engineering, such as developing a network of sensors to act as the car’s eyes and ears. In addition to the designing/building challenges, there are also the legal and social issues of incorporating driverless cars in society.

Official word of the Google-Ford partnership is expected sometime in the near future. Only time will tell what this partnership will achieve, but we at Courtesy Ford are excited to see what the future holds.
