Self driving Honda civic for $700


Self driving Honda civic for $700

Postby Rick » Tue Feb 21, 2017 8:41 am

A college student made good use of the open source comma.ai system to convert his Honda Civic into a self driving car. This article gives a nice basic overview and explains the features are similar to the early versions of the Tesla autopilot.

I'm a little surprised about the comments late in the article about regulations. I would assume modifying my own car is fine, but it would still be illegal for me to drive without touching the steering wheel. At least at this point.

I will be looking into the comments about the pre-built neo system being sold, as most people aren't going to have the ability to solder their own system together. I'll make a separate thread on Neodriven, the company selling it, when I have some time.

I made a brief post about Neodriven. As I get more information, I'll be posting it in that thread. It seems like perhaps comma.ai is not dead.

It seems like hacking your own car may become a hobby for the adventurous. I guess the future of cars won't just be cosmetic and performance mods, but computer / hardware / software related hacks.
