Ford Deploys Drones Over New Super Duty Pickup Trucks

Ford Motor Co. has deployed drones to capture a bird’s-eye view of its brand-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty truck.

The photo and video footage was captured with drones developed by DJI and piloted by Colorado-based Multicopter Warehouse. The Super Duty trucks are driving on highways, rural roads and mountain passes outside Denver.

“To fully appreciate the next-level capability of the all-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty, you need to take your vantage point to the next level, literally,” Ford says in a news release, which adds that many of the trucks pictured are towing conventional, fifth-wheel and gooseneck trailers.

Ford and DJI are collaborating on the DJI Developer Challenge, which is designed for innovators to create drone-to-vehicle communications using Ford SYNC AppLink or OpenXC and DJI’s software development kit. The goal is to generate a surveying system for the United Nations Development Program to inspect emergency zones inaccessible to even the most versatile vehicles. Ford Deploys Drones Over New Super Duty Pickup Trucks
