It's an interesting prospect - driveless vehicles on our roads, transforming the way we live, work and play.
Ford believe their future competitors are Google and Apple, not traditional motor companies. That type of forward thinking and planning has led them to stay ahead of the market and achieve £10.8Bn in profits.
What will that mean for the built environment? Massive change in the way we design roads, upgrade existing infrastructure and think about spaces... An exciting time to be in the industry!
Ford, which made record profits of $10.8bn last year, says that "Level 4" driverless cars will be available by the end of the decade. "Level 4" cars can drive autonomously in a pre-defined area fully mapped by computers. "Level 5" cars, much further away, can take over completely from the driver and "take you home", wherever that may be.
