How Ford and Heinz Will Make Cars Out of Tomatoes This Summer

How Ford and Heinz Will Make Cars Out of Tomatoes This Summer

TheStreet (June 10, 2014) Ford and Heinz are teaming up to find a new use for tomatoes: car parts. Together, the automaker and food processing company plan to fund research to explore the use of tomato fiber as a sustainable bio-plastic material for use in vehicle manufacturing. Researchers are currently testing the durability of dried tomato skins for use in wiring brackets within the hood or as a storage bin in the center console. Use of the food processing byproduct would fulfil Ford’s goal of reducing the use of petrochemicals in its manufacturing process. Already, Ford has integrated the use of other recycled and bio-based materials including coconuts, cotton, rice hulls and soy. Video provided by TheStreet

The assist mechanism is incredibly smooth, and its customizability level high. The integrated app even comes with turn-by-turn direction capabilities. We got an up-close look at the brand-new FlyKly model during the conference; see how it can save you from serious sweating in this video. Video provided by Popular Science

Ford Builds the World's Largest Robot-Driven Pickup

TFL Car (Dec. 22, 2013) ( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The Ford F-150 is the best selling vehicle in America...that's a fact, but is it the world's most durable truck? In order to improve and test the F-150's durability, Ford has built the world's largest robot controlled remote control truck. In the past in order to test the durability of an F-150 Ford drove the truck around a punishing circuit but the problem was the testing punished the driver's as much as the truck. In order to solve that problem Ford has created a driverless robotic durability test program as Roman discovered on a recent trip to Dearborn, Michigan.
