INNOVATION

TECHNOLOGY FROM OUTER SPACE

How the International Space Station is testing crucial new tech destined for future Ford models.

Connected cars of the future

The intelligent connected cars of the future will need flawless communications to operate safely and properly. Ford recently finished a large-scale research project aimed at enhancing vehicle communication technology. As a result of this three-year joint project with the St Petersburg State Polytechnic University, a highly reliable data communications system has been developed.

The fundamentals behind this advanced prototype system are now being used for special telematics experiments in space. Cosmonauts at the International Space Station are able to control a robot based on Earth. Although future Ford models won’t be from outer space, the technology they’ll use has at least been tested there.
