Ford has formed a new subsidiary company to focus on the development of self-driving vehicle systems, autonomous vehicle research and advanced engineering. Ford Autonomous Vehicles, LLC will be headquartered at Ford’s new Corktown Campus in downtown Detroit, which includes the recently-purchased Michigan Central Station, the former Detroit Public Schools Book Depository, the site of a former brass factory and other properties that will be transformed into a 1.2 million square foot urban workspace for approximately 2,500 Ford employees. Ford plans to invest $4 Billion in autonomous vehicle technologies through 2023.
