The young American has collected a working autopilot for Honda Civic by spending just $700.
The device, which brought together undergraduate University of Nebraska brévent Jorgenson, was created according to the drawings found in open source and runs on free software.
The device is installed instead of rear view mirrors in the car. The system controls the process of braking and acceleration, and is responsible for turning. Also, on conviction of the Creator, the system reacts to cars and other obstacles on the track.
Brévent Jorgenson, who worked as a tester for a startup Comma.ai, used outcomes of the project after they were made public. Also the student has applied for its autopilot OnePlus 3, on which installed the software. The housing and mounting of the autopilot was created on a 3D printer.
The first test of the autopilot student held in January 2017. According to Jorgenson, unmanned system worked “phenomenally” in spite of the dark.
By the way, the startup Comma.ai abandoned their plans to build affordable autopilot because of the threat of a large fine from the National traffic safety administration on the highways. At the moment the system only works for two models of Honda Civic and Acura ILX 2016 release.
