 Ford to make vehicles with no steering wheel, brakes or accelerator

Ford takes a cue from Google.

While search giant Google is still grappling with how to turn its Self-driving car unit into a money-spinner, after its fleets of self-driving Priuses and 'prototype' vehicles cumulatively racked up more than 1.8 million miles in autonomous driving, and to recoup the money it's spent on the project, automaker Ford plans to manufacture its fully Ford autonomous cars by 2021 to ferry passengers from point a to b. The American Motor company revealed this yesterday through its Chief Executive Officer Mark Fieldds

Is Google planning to launch its own cab business after Urmson's departure

Chris Urmson, the Carnegie Mellon University Professor who spearheaded the team involved in the development of Google's moonshot project--the Self-driving Car Program--has left after seven years for reasons known to them.Although I heard that the man whose team won the DARPA  challenge in 2005 had a beef with the Chief Executive Officer of the program, John Krafcrik who came into the company from Hyunda's Motor United States unit last year on the same assignment. Urmson probably did not like the way things were run under John Krafcrik leadership.

Is ''Self-driving car'' the right term for vehicles that drive themselves

Does anyone else feel like calling them "self-driving cars" is immediately limiting the conversation and people's thinking about what the future will look like? I do like the term, to be fair, "self-driving cars" because it does immediately let everyone know what you are talking about. "Wheeled robots," "Auton," "ground drones," "Autos" or any other of the options out there right now don't convey what the technology looks like right now, even if they might be a better fit in the future. So maybe that's the end of the conversation.
