Summary:
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The just revealed Automated Ford Fusion Hybrid looks like it has sprouted a pair of spinning horns. But the spinning horns are in fact four LiDAR infrared sensors that can scan the road 2.5 million times every second creating a viral map for the car. According to Ford this is the next step toward autonomous driving cars. But this third generation of potentially driverless cars is a test bed of new innovations that Ford says you'll soon see in many of their new cars. In another accurate and informative TFLcar video check out the latest efforts by Ford to build a safer and perhaps self-driving car.

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.

Ford May Be SYNCing With BlackBerry, Ditching Microsoft

TheStreet (Feb. 24, 2014) — Shares of BlackBerry are rising on Monday on reports that Ford is turning to the beleagured tech company to power its Sync voice-activated system. A partnership would be a significant achievement for BlackBerry, which has been struggling for years. In effect, Ford will be ditching Microsoft, whose voice-activated software has been the basis of Ford's Sync system since it was introduced in 2007. BlackBerry's QNX Software Systems is already featured in Audi and BMW vehicles, but would significantly expand its presence, as Ford has built more than 10 million vehicles worldwide that are equipped with Sync software.
