We have seen plenty of self driving prototypes intended to transport people, but we’ve yet to encounter a completely autonomous process for transporting goods directly to a customer’s doorstep. With the new Autolivery concept, Ford has envisioned a future of self-driving vans and drones working together to achieve this goal.
- the Autolivery concept is an electric self-driving van with deployable drones that can fly to your doorstep to pick up and drop off a package.
- While the scene shown today is not yet possible, ‘Autolivery’ suggests how our ongoing mobility research could enrich our lives in a more sustainable ‘City of Tomorrow
- Ford isn’t the first automaker to dream up a drone-launching van. Mercedes debuted its Vision Van concept last year, a vehicle with similar drone capabilities but less focus on full automation.
