Ford Traffic Jam Assist
Google's not the only company looking at driverless cars. Ford is working on the technology too, specifically for slow-moving situations. Leveraging technology already available that allows cars to self-parallel park, the company envisions helping drivers during one of the most stressful times of any commute: sitting in a traffic jam. Ford Traffic Jam Assist gathers information about how far away the car in front of it is, keeping the driver a safe distance, but moving whenever it is able to. Ford hopes that in the future, you could eat your doughnut and drink your coffee, using both hands, during that horrible morning rush hour commute.
