Google and Ford Merge To Create Driverless Cars

Google and Ford are planning to have a new joint venture in order to produce quality self-driving automobiles, according to recent reports.

The tech company Google and the automobile maker Ford will be joining forces to create the best self-driving vehicles ever. The two companies are planning to build an independent enterprise to build self-directed cars. The said unification is planned to be announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this January of 2016, said by Yahoo! Autos.

However, Ford has not yet confirmed the merging. It is still unclear if the agreement is true or not.

"We have been and will continue working with many companies and discussing a variety of subjects related to our Ford Smart Mobility plan. We keep these discussions private for obvious competitive reasons, and we do not comment on speculation," said by the American multinational automaker to Computerworld.

If the said report will come into reality, the pairing with Google will offer Ford a more enhanced technology in terms of self-driving software development. Yahoo Autos also revealed that the automaker has already been developing its own driverless cars for years.

Google, on the other hand, is one of the pioneering companies in terms of the self-driving vehicles. Over the years, the American tech company already tested a large number of autonomous cars over the highways of California and Texas.

Driverless cars are now starting to grow in the automobile industry. One of its advantages over the conventional automobiles is that it offers safety and security as it will lessen the risk of having road accidents. The main disadvantage however, also lies on its own program as the computer operated vehicle can have certain glitches and bugs that will cause the car to have some malfunctions.

Aside from the usage of latest machinery like sensors and cameras, driverless cars are made possible through primary software. Through the use of software, the cars will function automatically thru artificial intelligence. This will then make the vehicle communicate with other cars in the roadways.
