The X-Matic turns any car into a drone

It Seems that the idea of a hacker was to the taste to other developers, so some took the initiative in their own hands by developing their own autopilot systems, suitable to any car. One of the startups — a canadian company X-Matic, developed a system of five components, taking control of the vehicle itself.

LaneCruise System consists of a Central processor, front camera, touch interface for the driver, and the steering and pedal actuators. Devices from the kit are placed over the existing controls of the car and take all the actions of the driver.

When working LaneCruise does not use GPS and various sensors, so its price is much lower than the more advanced counterparts. Instead of a heaped pile of lidar and other things, LaneCruise content only with the camera that is mounted on the windshield and sends the captured information to the computer that handles it and takes the necessary decisions.

The Developers emphasize that LaneCruise first and foremost is the assistant of the driver, but to completely replace a human driver, he can not. Furthermore, the third level of autonomy LaneCruise does not allow the system to do without a driver, as it does not take road with no markings and is not able to distinguish between intersections, if there is no car.

However, the canadian assistant will be available year and a half to two, and the cost of its beta version will be about $ 1,500.
