FORD AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES & MOBILITY
Ford Autonomous Vehicles (AV) & Mobility is dedicated to enhancing freedom of movement through a suite of mobility products and services, from micromobility to microtransit.
WHAT WE DO
Ford is building a commercial self-driving service for ride-hailing and goods delivery starting in Austin, TX, Miami, FL and Washington, D.C. with plans to scale. To do this, Ford is bringing together all the complex pieces needed to launch a scalable, successful self-driving service: this includes the self-driving system we are developing with our technology partner Argo AI, integrated into our Ford Escape Hybrid vehicle platform, a thoughtful customer experience across all touchpoints, physical infrastructure in the cities where we operate, as well as working with ride-hailing and delivery demand partners to bring our service to customers. This is just the beginning of our journey.
FORD'S APPROACH TO DEVELOPING AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES
Ford issued a comprehensive report to the U.S. Department of Transportation outlining the way we approach autonomous vehicle development with trust as our guiding principle. Our report, A Matter of Trust 2.0 highlights how we are safely operating our autonomous vehicles on the road, our autonomous history and more.
JOIN OUR TEAM
While Ford is based in Detroit, Michigan we have people all over the U.S. who work on our autonomous vehicle business – including in our initial launch cities: Austin, Miami and Washington D.C. Join a team on a mission to redefine mobility. Find available positions in autonomous vehicles.
City Solutions engages deeply with cities to develop relationships built on trust. City Solutions collaborates with the key groups that shape urban mobility, including city governments, transit agencies, community organizations, residents, and other companies. We work together to help identify opportunities to introduce and iterate our mobility products and services, to deliver greater access for all.
Tap into innovative ideas and pilots created through the community centered design approach of City:One Challenges. Then bring them to life through community workshops, crowdsourcing initiatives, startup and entrepreneurial camps, and city-wide mobility challenges.
C-V2X is a wireless communication technology that can “talk” to and “listen” for similarly equipped vehicles, people and traffic management infrastructure such as traffic lights to relay important information and help make city mobility safer and less congested. Planned alongside the rapidly building 5G cellular network, C-V2X also enables direct communication between vehicles and connected devices such as a pedestrian’s smartphone, meaning a signal doesn’t need to first travel to a cellular tower, allowing quicker information flow. Ultimately, it lets drivers know what’s ahead of them even before they have to encounter it.
