Autonomous driving is no longer reserved for luxury cars, as Ford reveals plans to bring driverless systems – including one which can park a car without the driver being inside – to our roads very soon. The systems will be affordable alternatives to those already offered by BMW and Tesla.
 Called Traffic Jam Assist, the first system works alongside the car’s cruise control and uses cameras and radar to monitor road markings and surrounding traffic. When driving in stop-start traffic on a busy motorway, the feature can be switched on via the steering wheel; it then takes control of the steering, brakes and accelerator.
