Carmakers Diverge On How Quickly To Rollout Automatic Braking

Big automakers are rushing to launch self-driving cars as early as 2021, but the industry’s major players are moving slowly when it comes to widespread deployment of a less expensive crash prevention technology that regulators say could prevent thousands of deaths and injuries every year.

Nissan sold about 1.6 million vehicles in the United States last year. Rival Toyota Motor Corp has said it will make so-called automat...

Ford Working On Pothole Warning System For Drivers

Ford will commence testing a clever new crowd-sourced virtual pothole map later this year. The map will work in real-time, making drivers aware of potholes and how bad they are via their in-car displays, while also suggesting alternate routes. In the UK alone, local authorities receive a pothole damage claim every 17 minutes - with costs averaging £432. Back in 2011, around 20 million potholes were reported in Europe, but only half of them were filled, at an estimated cost of over €1.2 billion. "A virtual pothole map could highlight a new pothole the minute it appears and almost immediately warn other drivers that there is a hazard ahead," explained Uwe Hoffmann, a research engineer for Ford. "Our cars already feature sensors that detect potholes and now we are looking at taking t...

Despite Trump, Ford Moves Ahead With Plans For Mexico Plants

Ford Mexico CEO Gabriel Lopez said at a company event in Mexico City Thursday that it's going ahead with plans to expand two of its plants -- an engine plant in Chihuahua and a transmission plant in Irapuato. These plans aren't new -- they were first announced in 2015. But they may seem at odds with all the recent buzz about U.S. automakers bringing jobs back to the U.S., particularly Ford, amid pressure from Trump. Related: On Mexican auto jobs, Trump misses the point. Most workers make parts, not cars Ford got a lot of attention last month when it dropped its plans to build a $1.6 billion assembly plant in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. But the small car production originally planned for the discontinued San Luis Potosi plant is shifting to an existing Ford Mexican assembly plant, not retur...
