Ford have been working on self driving cars technology for some time. Now Ford has announced a new partnership with Lyft. The two companies will be working together on self driving vehicles.
The goal of the partnership between the two companies is to take self driving cars mainstream. The plan is to use Lyft’s network to deploy the self driving vehicles that Ford is developing.
Today, we’re announcing a significant step toward bringing self-driving vehicles to the masses thanks to a new partnership with Lyft that will help both companies progress toward a more affordable, dependable and accessible transportation future.
As we at Ford continue making progress on developing self-driving technology — through our self-driving vehicle and Argo AI’s virtual driver system — we are simultaneously building out the infrastructure and systems necessary to make it easy for people to use our service. Think of it this way: Someday, when you open the Lyft app during a period of high demand, Ford and Lyft software will need to be capable of quickly dispatching a self-driving vehicle so that you can get to your destination as quickly and as safely as possible.
