Ford hasn't shied away from the prospect of robo-cars. 

Back in 2017, Ford brought on autonomous vehicle startup Argo AI to develop a self-driving program with plans to provide a self-driving taxi service in several cities by 2021. It's been testing in Miami, Washington, D.C., Detroit, and maybe soon in Austin. Its cars can be spotted testing autonomous food deliveries in Miami. Autonomous pizza, anyone?

Ford cars were even used early in Uber's self-driving program back before Volvo brought in thousands of its vehicles, including one that was involved in last year's fatal crash in Arizona.
