The Driverless Revolution is Here: Cruise with your self-driving car in 2015

Whether you're a bad driver, or really into hi-tech, I bet you love the fact that self-driving cars are the future of vehicles. Google has been developing self-driving car prototypes for years now, but the company is not the only one – Cruise is the new techy start-up that is revolutionizing the practice of a car moving without us. And, while Google expects its cars to hit the market between 2017 and 2020, Cruise expects its launch in 2015!

 

Cruise has created an aftermarket RP-1 kit for Audi's most recent models, the A4s and S4s (for the time being), that allows an autopilot to drive your car. An in-car computer is collecting road data, and based on those, it gives instructions to the control system. At the same time, Cruise's system integrates many sensors for the cruise control, instructing the autopilot to precisely follow the road, and to keep you in the lane, as the car speeds up, or halts, depending on the traffic.

 

The Cruise is still not a fully-developed autonomous vehicle, so you have to keep your eyes on the road. Your Cruise driverless car does relieve you from stress while you drive, but you can't afford to completely disengage from the driving activity.

Unlike the Google self-driving car, which you actually have to buy in order to feel the driverless experience, Cruise works with the car you already have. Thus, Cruise's RP-1 lets you drive your own car, or, that is, the RP-1 lets your car drive you.

 

Cruise is currently accepting 50 pre-orders for a launch as early as next year. With every installation you get access to Cruise's app that stores everything your own RP-1 comes across, so that you better monitor the immediate surroundings. The RP-1 Cruise tech may cost you an arm and a leg, $10,000 to be precise, but if it keeps up with development, it might trigger some competitive price tagging.
