Custom software enables the hardware "learn" to drive intuitively, like a human would. "We have not told this car anything about driving. We've shown it 10 hours of human driving footage, and we're like, Here is what the human did. Behave like that human as much as you can. And you get all of this intuition that you'd never really get in a really big system," said Hotz. Continue reading for three more cool car technologies.
