Ford designs remote vehicle control as part of new mobility initiative

Ford is at work building a remote control that can operate a vehicle thousands of miles away via a 4G LTE connection and existing technology, the company revealed. Ford said the remote system costs less than $300 and could be used by rental car companies and car-share services to reduce congestion in car lots and to move cars around cities for increased availability. The project is part of Ford’s 25 “mobility experiments” initiative.
