Ford Using Robotic Test Drivers for Trucks

Ford is now the first automaker to develop a robotic test-driving program to drive vehicles in high impact on-road and off-road durability testing at their Michigan Proving Ground in Romeo, Mich. The purpose of using robots will be for driving Ford trucks when the terrain is too taxing for human drivers. Autonomous Solutions Inc. provided Ford with the design and manufacturing of the software for the robotic operations.
