Discussion about comma.ai open source software
Their full self-driving car software is now available to download and modify for free from Github: https://github.com/commaai
As Hotz stated it's an Alpha version with NO guarantees, that is it needs a lot of coding. It can run a Honda Civic at maximum 18 mph but has not been tested in busy roads. Anyway, I downloaded it and playing around with the code. Interesting stuff btw.
Comma.ai plan to be the official OS for self-driving technology. Being open source is a great advantage, the community can't wait to improve the code.
It might become the Linux for self-driving technology but it takes time and a huge support from the developers community.
There is still some regulation to take care when it comes to safety on the roads. Now Geohacks code is open source but what happens if somebody use its code and there is an accident? Who's responsible? Geohacks or the user of its code?
Separate names with a comma.
