Ford’s Australia Production Ends

Ford’s Australia Production kicked off way back in 1925, nearly a century ago, but now it’s coming to an end. In 2013, Ford, Toyota, and General Motors all announced they would be leaving the country in coming years if things didn’t change. That prediction is coming to fruition with Ford closing the doors of its Broadmeadows plant this year. Though the final #FordFalcon rolled off the production line today, its legacy will live on in our ongoing R&D investment. pic.twitter.com/Gl6l1uOawo — Ford Australia (@FordAustralia) October 7, 2016 The final Ford Falcon XR6 rolled off the production line and will find its home in Ford’s Australia museum.

MIT and Ford LiDAR Shuttle Services that Can Learn

Ford is teaming up with MIT to measure pedestrian traffic using LiDAR (Light Imaging, Detection, and Radar) and cameras in order to predict demand for on-demand electric shuttle services. The project will use the data from the cameras and LiDAR to send electric shuttle cars to areas of high demand. The program will start with a small group of teachers and students who will be able to request a shuttle through a mobile app and tell it where to go, and the shuttle will decide the most efficient route to get there. Because the shuttles are equipped with LiDAR sensing technology, which is much more accurate than GPS, they have
