Ford Reveals Automated Fusion Hybrid That Can Almost Drive Itself

TFL Car (Dec. 14, 2013) — ( 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.

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.

TheStreet (Mar. 26, 2014) — The Energy Information Agency reports crude oil inventories build by 6.6 million barrels in the latest week. BRG Brokerage President Jeff Grossman tells TheStreet's Joe Deaux that this is a much larger-than-expected build, but he is surprised the WTI crude market remains little changed amid the inventory build and the Crimea crisis.
