Ford Announces Bold Plans for Drone Future





Ford’s UAV systems development group created a platform that allows for testing of applications involving drones and automobiles. Best of all, it will be an open-source platform that will allow independent teams to do their own work on it.

“As drone adoption accelerates, we think many of our customers will want to use these devices as part of their lifestyle, whether to pursue hobbies or even as a tool for their business—no different than how they use an F-150 or Transit on a job site,” the job post from Luo and Singh reads.

While it remains to be seen what kind of impact Ford will have on the development of UAV technology, the future certainly looks bright for the segment. The addition of Ford’s commercial transportation expertise with the disruptive opportunities offered by drone technology should prove a potent combination indeed.
