WASHINGTON, D.C. – Self driving cars are headed to D.C. Ford announced a partnership with Washington, D.C. Monday with plans to begin testing self-driving cars early next year.
So far, self-driving cars have been tested mainly in suburbs and smaller cities. But D.C. will prove a challenge for Ford’s vehicles as driving in cities is significantly more difficult than in suburbs or on highways.
Ford also plans to launch a self-driving ride service in Washington D.C. in 2021, which is already being tested in Miami.
