Ford aims to put fully autonomous vehicles on roads by 2021

Aug 17, 2016

A century ago, Henry Ford changed the auto industry with the moving assembly line. 

Now Ford Motor Company has set an ambitious goal of developing a fully autonomous vehicle for mass production by 2021.

That's autonomous as in self-driving, with no steering wheel and no gas or brake pedals. 

To make that happen, Ford has announced it's joining forces with four tech companies and plans to double its staff in Silicon Valley. 

Randy Visintainer​, director of autonomous vehicle development at Ford, joined us today to talk about how the company plans to introduce fully autonomous vehicles in the next five years.
