On a recent announcement, Ford just closed a deal with Quantum Signal to work with the self-driving that will be implemented on its vehicles.
The terms of the deal were not revealed.
On a Medium report by Ford Motor Company, the company states:
“To further advance its goal of launching a self-driving vehicle business, Ford has acquired Quantum Signal and will make use of its extensive experience in real-time simulation and algorithm development to develop its Transportation as a Service (TaaS) platform, as well as vehicle controls that support the customer experience, functional safety and other vehicle systems. The wide range of the group’s work portfolio means it will be able to support Ford in numerous areas as the company develops self-driving vehicles and transportation as a service business, including software development and hardware prototyping.”
Quantum Signal is known for its simulations used especially by military programs. The system known as ANVEL explores the performance of unmanned remote and autonomous systems.
