According to Digital Trends the U.S. car manufacturing goliath is moving ahead with European testing as it pursues its ambitious strategy to introduce fully autonomous vehicles for ride-hailing by 2021.
“It is important that we extend our testing to Europe,” said Ford of Europe’s manager for Automated Driving Thomas Lukaszewicz. “Rules of the road vary from country to country here, traffic signs and road layouts are different, and drivers are likely to share congested roads with cyclists.”
Testing will begin at Ford’s Engineering Center in Essex, U.K. After this, trials will be expanded to its Germany-based Research & Advanced Engineering facilities in Cologne and Aachen.
Ford indicated that the locations undertaking the testing were chosen because they are already familiarized with its self-driving technology.
