VIDEO: Ford's Next Autonomous Development Car

Ford Motor Co. has revealed its next-generation Fusion Hybrid autonomous development vehicle that uses Ford’s autonomous vehicle platform.

The vehicle improves upon the processing power of Ford's existing platform with new computer hardware, according to the automaker.

Ford said the next-generation autonmous vehicle's electrical controls are closer to production-ready, and adjustments to the sensor technology allow the car to be better aware of its surroundings. The vehicle uses two LiDAR sensors rather than the standard four, and it has a sleeker design and more targeted field of vision.

The vehicle also features an upgraded virtual driver system, according to the automaker.

The car will appear at CES in Las Vegas and the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.
