Automakers and lawmakers are trying to figure out to implement some level of oversight of autonomous vehicles, but in the meantime some robot cars have already hit the road. For example, there’s college student Jorgen Brevenson’s Honda Civic, which he outfitted with autonomous gadgetry for just $700. Seven hundred dollars!
In an interview with the MIT Technology Review, Brevenson explains he relied on the open-source self-driving car kit made by Comma.ai. You might recall Comma.ai from last fall, when the company’s CEO George Hotz introduced his Comma One driving kit, and said it could transform a boring traditional car into a hi-tech self-driving robot.
