DEARBORN, Mich. — Back in 2018, Ford issued a comprehensive report to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) that outlined the way the company approached self-driving vehicle development. A lot has changed in the years since, but Ford’s purpose has remained rock solid: to use autonomous technology to help make people’s lives better by providing a safe, trusted and affordable mobility solution.

Since Ford released that first safety report, the company has continued bringing together all the complex pieces needed to launch a self-driving service. In addition to working with Argo AI to advance the development of a robust Automated Driving System to guide its vehicles on the road, they have continued to research and develop an exceptional customer experience, its fleet management capabilities, its behind-the-scenes transportation-as-a-service software and more.

To capture these developments and maintain Ford’s goal to be transparent, the company has recently updated its voluntary safety self-assessment, A Matter of Trust 2.0 and shared it with the U.S. DOT.
