Ford is partnering with popular Lyft transportation network to explore and promote self-driving vehicles in the future. With a goal of developing more affordable, dependable and accessible transportation, both companies are working to bridge the gap between public transportation and autonomous vehicles.
With a growing customer base and a strong knowledge of transportation flow within cities, Lyft is a perfect fit for self-driving vehicles. Ford is continuously making progress on autonomous driving technology including a prototype self-driving vehicle and a high tech virtual driver system. In the future both Ford and Lyft hope to have software in place that will be capable of quickly dispatching self-driving vehicles to Lyft customers.
Ford is placing the highest priority on safety and dependability of their self-driving technology. Secondary to this will be development of a technology platform that can connect with partner companies like Lyft’s. Exploration of future infrastructures that will be necessary to maintain a fleet of self-driving vehicles is also taking place as well as identifying which cities will be the first to use Lyft’s self-driving vehicle service.
