Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) HEFFX Summary

Ford, which recently replaced CEO Mark Fields with Jim Hackett, is hoping new technologies like self-driving cars can help revive the struggling company.

Fields said in January that Ford planned to develop a completely autonomous vehicle by 2021, and Salesky confirmed that the auto company is sticking with that date.

But Ford has a lot of work to do to improve autonomous vehicle technology, Salesky admitted, especially in terms of creating autonomous cars that can perceive nuances like the differences between children by themselves and when they are holding their mother’s hands.

A self-driving car needs to know that children, when not by the side of their parents, may move “erratically,” and so the car must “then plan accordingly.”

Self driving cars will need this ability to perceive tremendous amounts of detail on the road if they are to become mainstream.

Ford-Werke GmbH, Ford’s German division, is recruiting the Deutsche Post’s subsidiary StreetScooter GmbH to build an electric van for Germany, according to a Ford press release today.

This subsidiary is already famous in the van world for building cheap electric vans for mass production, so Ford’s latest project is in good hands.
