Drones and cars an unlikely match? Think again. Ford's been testing it with the F-150 pickup. BMW (actually, aftermarket tuner Rinspeed) wants to do it with the i8.
In the case of the F-150 pickup, a likely scenario would be one where F-150s are used by emergency aid workers in low-accessibility disaster areas, and further surveillance of inaccessible regions is required. A drone could be launched from the back of the pickup to map and survey the surrounding area.
