Ford Dives Into Driverless Automobile Research

One of the recurring topics on the Man on Earth tour bus on our last run was that of driverless cars.
Ford is making leaps and bounds in their research with their Fusion hybrid driverless prototype, as seen in the video below.

The idea of driverless cars opens up a slew of both pros and cons. I personally think that it’s the future of the automobile industry, but I love to drive, so it’s a mixed bag for me.
The increased safety of a constant 360° monitoring system will reduce accidents and traffic violations. Ideally, at some point, likely in the near future, you will get in your car, punch in your destination, then utilize your time doing something other than driving.
Sounds like hours of time saved. Let’s hope Skynet doesn’t take over though, or we’d all be screwed!
