Ford Integrates Drone Launching Capabilities Into F-150

The latest Ford innovation could potentially save a lot of lives, and here at Colonial Ford, we could not be more thrilled to share the news! Ford Motor Company is working toward the capability of launching and landing drones on the backs of moving Ford F-150 trucks, giving first responders and other emergency personnel access to a whole new set of life-saving technologies.

The iconic Ford brand supports a Developer Challenge that is currently hosted by drone manufacturer DJI, with the hopes of serving emergency first responders during critical situations. The challenge competitors are asked to use the Ford SYNC® AppLink™ technology to allow the Ford F-150 to launch and recover drones from the back of the truck while it is moving, among other potentially life-saving capabilities. While our current drone technology serves many purposes, we are especially grateful for their service during search and rescue missions and hope to see them become more prevalent with our emergency personnel.

We eagerly anticipate the arrival of drone-enabled Ford F-150 trucks to the Danbury region. While we wait, we hope you will choose to visit us here at Colonial Ford to explore our current lineup of new Ford trucks for sale in Danbury, CT today!
