The recent CEO shuffle at Ford suggests it's getting serious about self-driving cars: On Monday, it promoted its head of "Smart Mobility," Jim Hackett, to the CEO role.
But statistics show that Ford -- and every other car maker -- is way behind Waymo, the self-driving car unit of Google parent Alphabet, when it comes to testing autonomous cars on real roads.
In the year that ended on Nov. 30, 60 Waymo cars drove more than 635,000 miles in autonomous mode on public roads in California.
The Nevada Centre for Advanced Mobility (Nevada CAM) and tech firm Nexar have today announced a strategic partnership that will create the first statewide vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) network in the US.
Nexar connects cars in the world’s largest open vehicle-to-vehicle network. The collaboration is designed to enhance safety on Nevada’s roads and highways, spur economic development and job creation, and introduce a series of smart transportation systems.
The latter will optimise infrastructure management, regional planning and inform policy throughout the state.

“Now, what should happen when you make a mistake is this: You take your knocks, you learn your lessons, and then you move on. That's the healthiest way to deal with a problem… You know, by the time you reach my age, you've made plenty of mistakes. And if you've lived your life properly — so, you learn. You put things in perspective. You pull your energies together. You change. You go forward.”
No tweets. No excuses. Accept responsibility. Make amends and move on.
