How a College Kid
Made His Honda Civic
Self-Driving for $700
Who needs a Tesla when you can build your own automated copilot
using free hardware designs and software available online?
Brevan Jorgenson’s grandma kept her
cool when he took her for a nighttime
spin in the Honda Civic he’s modified to
drive itself on the highway. A homemade
device in place of the rearview mirror can
control the brakes, accelerator, and steering, and it uses a camera to identify road
markings and other cars.
