Bill Ford Junior is in charge of things over and Ford Motor Company. Ford is talking about some of his predictions for the future of the automobile over the next decade and beyond. According to Ford within the next seven years, we will see cars start to hit streets that have autopilot type functions integrated. This functionality will allow the cars to operate themselves in low-speed traffic situations.

Ford also sees the vehicles having car-to-car warning systems and other sensors. Mr. Ford sees semi-autonomous vehicles rolling the highways of the world between 2017 and 2025. Presumably, this sort of vehicle would be of the type that requires little input from the driver.

Beyond 2025 is when he predicts fully automated vehicles will come to market. Fully automated vehicles will be a big change needing no driver input to operate. Presumably, these automated vehicles would be able to drive those that can't drive due to disability or age anywhere they want to go.
