The car in your garage might have the potential to become self-driving with the help of a new company.
Cruise, a new startup, has developed a system that incorporates sensors, actuators and a small computer to take over some of the driving functions for certain commercially-available cars. It’s not fully autonomous, like Google’s self-driving car, but the system does automate the car’s steering, acceleration and deceleration. The system will keep the car on the road and running, but it’s up to the driver to obey traffic laws.
“The computation systems for self-driving cars were large and bulky when I worked on [autonomous vehicles] in 2004,” Vogt told TechCruch. “We would have ten servers and a rack in the back of a pick-up truck. But that kind of power is now available in your cell phone.”
