WATCH: Ford's autonomous Fusion drives in total darkness

DRIVING IN THE DARK: Ford tests the limits of its autonomous driving tech by switching off the headlights of its Fusion hybrid and allowing the car to drive in total darkness. According to Ford: "Driving in pitch black at Ford Arizona Proving Ground marks the next step on the company’s journey to delivering fully autonomous vehicles to customers around the globe. It’s an important development in that it shows that even without cameras, which rely on light, Ford’s LiDAR – working with the car’s virtual driver software – is robust enough to steer flawlessly around winding roads."
