At Ford, we believe self-driving vehicles will help make a positive impact in our communities by providing greater access to transportation and delivery services. Since establishing our self-driving operations in our first launch city, Miami, Florida, collaboration has been central to our approach. We’ve been working closely with local officials and the community to understand how our service offerings can integrate within the existing transportation system and how it can provide value.
To do this, we are conducting pilots that will help us stand up our self-driving business. At the same time, we also wanted to find a way to help the community as it deals with the challenges of the global pandemic. That’s why we recently teamed up with The Education Fund, a local non-profit in Miami-Dade County, building on previous business pilots to now conduct deliveries with our self-driving vehicles in autonomous mode.
