Google and Ford plan to announce at CES that they will partner to create an independent company to build autonomous vehicles.  According to three sources “familiar with the plans” believe Ford will announce the partnership in January at the Consumer Electronics Show. Neither Ford nor Google would confirm the partnership plans.  Jeremy Carlson, a senior analyst with IHS Automotive, said during a webcast last week that Google is serious about spinning off a separate autonomous car company. Carlson said sources believed Google would develop service-only vehicles and not a traditional car manufacturing business.
