Ford has a few off-road autonomous driving systems in the works

Autonomous driving technologies are becoming more prevalent, and many more are to be expected. These technologies are primarily designed for traditional road use, but Ford is apparently developing systems that would allow its SUVs and trucks to navigate off-road trails on their own.

Still at an early stage, these technologies would be able to warn the driver first and foremost if the passage is safe before offering the option of letting the person behind the wheel do the driving, or of navigating the trail autonomously.

If the system detects that a particular trail is dangerous and that there is a risk of rollover, a signal will warn passengers to leave the vehicle so that the latter can cross the risky passage by itself. The vehicle owner could even control the vehicle with his or her mobile device through an app.

You can’t stop progress…
