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.
