True. But I think it also shows how all the building blocks for "a driverless car" are maturing to the level, they are trusted enough to be used for rigorous testing.

Even though Ford made it clear that the purpose for the robotic testing program is NOT for "autonomous driving," underlying technologies are very similar.

I'm not surprised that they are using robots for durability testing. I'm surprised it hasn't been going on for a long time. It makes a lot of sense I think.
