With auto makers all looking for best new technology, the next big thing that consumers want, the Customer Electronics Show this past week was a flood of new innovations that peaked our interest, like BMW’s 360 camera, Chevy’s new Volt, and more. That being said, Ford was not about to be out-done, and in fact, they took the Show to a whole new level.
At the Show this past week, Ford announced the Ford Smart Mobility Plan. This Plan is a way that Ford plans to take technology and innovations and solve real world problems, like the increase of cars and pollution, or the difficulty of finding a parking spot.
A large part of Ford’s Smart Mobility Plan is the global mobility experiments they are performing. These 25 global mobility experiments focus on overcoming transportations challenges. These new ideas and technology developed by Ford could change the way we all get to work, to school, and to the store.
“Even as we showcase connected cars and share our plans for autonomous vehicles, we are here at CES with a higher purpose,” said Mark Field, Ford President and CEO. “We are driving innovation in every part of our business to be both a product and mobility company – and, ultimately, to change the way the world moves just as our founder Henry Ford did 111 years ago.”
These experiments include car-sharing, rapid-recharging vehicles, a parking assistance app, and more.
