Google has signed a deal with Ford to create cars that the companies hope will eventually be able to predict where drivers want to go. The car will send trip data to remote servers that use cloud computing technology to store and analyse it, reports The Sydney Morning Herald. The car will then use the data to improve its efficiency and plan its routes. Ford research engineer Johannes Kristinsson said, "A key component of this project is looking at how to develop secure personal profiles that will ensure appropriate levels of protection and specific data use only by the driver and the vehicle.''
