Ford and Google Want to Make Your Drive Easier
Ford and Google are partnering up to revolutionize the technology in the automotive industry. This will no doubt help drivers to become more efficient. It offers a chance that can change the way we drive forever.
Ford is looking to enhance the driving experience for its customer base as well as add some extra “umph” to its electric car line. Google which is currently a huge success with its android Smartphone platform has some extremely impressive technology that Ford is interested in.
It’s called Google Prediction API. It’s designed to increase the intelligence of an ordinary smart app. It is complete with learning algorithms that analyze the data history. This makes it possible to predict likely instances in future outcomes. For instance, a daily drive to work would be programmed into the memory of the electric vehicle’s software. This enables the software to help find more efficient routes to work, in particular electric driving zones. These types of driving zones will have to become more plentiful. Electric and hybrid vehicles will also have to become more commonplace vehicles in order to be affordable for consumers as well as profitable for both Ford and Google.
Google’s Prediction API linked with Ford’s MyFord Touch software could very well be an impressive final product.
I have spoken to many people who feel that they will lose control of their vehicles. You can read up on the technology to verify this. However, you will definitely still have control of your vehicle.
Ford and GM are experimenting with accident avoidance, which may control your vehicle at a point when you are near colliding with another vehicle. It’s still in the early stages. Both technologies sound very exciting.
