Ford said it will acquire Quantum Signal AI, a company focused on mobile robotics, modeling and simulation. Ford said it will use Quantum Signal AI's simulation and algorithm development know-how for its autonomous vehicle ambitions.

Quantum Signal AI is a 20-year-old company based in Saline, MI. The company counts the Department of Defense as a big customer for its ANVEL modeling and simulation tools for mobile robotics and autonomous vehicles.

The acquisition of Quantum Signal AI also complements Ford's purchase of SAIPS, an Israel-based company focused on machine learning, three years ago, and the company's investment with Volkswagen to invest in Argo AI.
