Ford to debut autonomous car in four years

Ford CEO Mark Fields has said that the company has tripled its investment in developing new driver assist features. He indicated that more automated driving features would be embraced by new Ford and Lincoln models within four years.

Ford has been finalising the traffic jam assist and an automatic parking system that can shift, brake and navigate into a parking spot. Traffic jam assist combines functions like the adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist for a few seconds of driving without hands. The car maker proudly admitted that they already have 30 Fusion Hybrid saloons testing in three states of the US and expects to sell fully-autonomous featureswithin four years.

Ford has some homework on its hands over the next few years as the accuracy of current generation semi-autonomous system needs enhancement. Other car makers likeGM have pledged to equip ‘Super Cruise’on the Cadillac models in 2017, and Nissan is poised to get these features plus abilities to automatically swerve from obstacles and change lanes by 2018.

Our cars of the future sure seem like they’ve popped out of some sci-fi movie.
