The Cruise RP-1 self-driving car kit, a highway autopilot, is your personal chauffeur, that always watching the roads, even when you aren’t.
The Cruise RP-1 is a highway autopilot. It controls your steering, throttle, and braking, making sure your car remains safely in its lane and a safe distance from the car in front of you.
It sees the road and cars around you through the sensor pod mounted on the roof of your car.
Controlled by a central computer, to make sure you and your loved ones are always safe, a combination of cameras, radar and other measurement systems, the Sensor Pod relays what it detects, to make real time decisions on where to go.
The Controls for the Cruise RP-1 seamlessly integrate into your car making it easy to engage and disengage the autopilot. A simple click of a button will enable the RP-1 to take control of your steering and speed. Just sit back and watch as the RP-1 guides your car down the road.
In the trunk of your car you will find the Computer – the brain of the RP-1. Taking up less than two feet of space and mounted off to the side, the Computer calculates exactly what it needs to do to keep you and your loved ones safe using state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms.
