Ford's self-driving cars bring a different kind of fiesta to Miami

The automaker will have two separate projects running in Miami to both flesh out its AV platform and see how the public reacts to 'self-driving' delivery vehicles.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

It already has two separate fleets on the ground -- one from its partnership with Argo AI, and one from a separate partnership with Domino's.

The Domino's partnership is not so much a vehicle test as it is an exploration into how the general public will react to self-driving cars.

Sadly, it's not a real self-driving car, as there are pretty strict regulations in Michigan surrounding the use of AVs for commercial purposes, it's just dressed up like one.

While Domino's might be using "self-driving" cars, Argo AI's autonomous car is as real as it gets.

The company, which received a $1 billion investment from Ford last year, is dedicated to building a software system that will provide the underpinnings for proper autonomy.

Ford is also establishing a centralized base of operations near downtown Miami that will serve as a hub for both service and routine things like cleaning.

The automaker is working with local dealers to find ways to integrate AV-related operations into already established franchises.
