Ford has announced its partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Stanford University to work together on new research and self-driving cars or automated driving cars.

According to Ford, the research is key to its “Blueprint for Mobility,” which is a vision of what the automobile industry will look like in 2025.

Under the partnership, Ford will work on its existing Ford Fusion Hybrid, an automated research vehicle. MIT will work on Fusion Hybrid with new technology which will allow vehicles to predict any object in its way like pedestrian, or another car, might move next. While, the Stanford researchers, meanwhile, will work on making the car’s own awareness smarter.

To deliver on our vision for the future of mobility, we need to work with many new partners across the public and private sectors, and we need to start today,” said Paul Mascarenas, chief technical officer and Vice President, Ford research and innovation. “Working with university partners like MIT and Stanford enables us to address some of the longer-term challenges surrounding automated driving while exploring more near-term solutions for delivering an even safer and more efficient driving experience.
