Work on Ford’s autonomous technologies continues – the company is developing a Fusion self-driving prototype with highly advanced sensors, radars, and software. The Blue oval brand demonstrated what it has achieved so far at the University of Michigan and its Mcity facility.Mcity simulates urban environment which allows Ford to safely test up to Level 4-capable autonomous vehicles in “scenarios like traffic in intersections, pedestrians in crosswalks, different traffic signals, and even bicyclists.” During the demonstration earlier this week, autonomous Fusion prototypes “successfully piloted themselves around the faux city landscape, top speed around 25 miles per hour,” as Automotive News reports.
