Do you have a sense of adventure, some technical know-how, and about $700? Relying on the free open source software and hardware designs supplied by Comma.ai, you may be able to turn your newer model Honda or Acura into a self-driving car.
You wouldn’t be the first.
A college student from the University of Nebraska (Omaha) recently altered his 2016 Honda Civic so that the steering, brakes, and accelerator are controlled by a DIY self-driving kit. The college senior appears to be a bellwether for a growing movement of researchers and hobbyists experimenting with homegrown solutions and available software and hardware plans, as opposed to buying a Telsa with AutoPilot.
