    Yeah, not sure I want that code controlling my car. One look through the code and I'm not impressed.

    His initial system for sale only worked on Honda with HondaSense (lane keeping) if I recall correctly. Likely tapping into those control systems to operate steering, accelerator, and brakes.

    A pre autopilot car wouldn't have any mechanism for the self driving software, even with a radar added, to actually operate steering, brakes, etc.

    I actually think the steering part is there, but the brakes. (At least I don't recall WK057 saying that he had to replace the steering.)

    Hotz has already declared defeat and shut down /
    He should have accepted Elon's job offer when he had the chance.

    Interesting topic. Is the iBooster necessary for hotz' product? Because the iBooster was introduced around 2014 i think

    There is no way for automated brake application on a Tesla without the iBooster.

    I think you're right, i recall something about that from WK. I bet the power assist steering is electric, to avoid requiring the pump setup.

    I would not ride in a car with that box installed, much less consider it for my own ride.

    Isn't the large part of the problem not just that the sensors are missing, but there are no remote control systems for steering, brakes, etc?

    Brakes need to be changed, but not steering. When wk057 retrofitted AP1 into his SO's car he made a parts list and it didn't include an updated steering system so I asked him about that; he said the pre-AP steering can be controlled already over CAN. It's the same steering in non-AP and AP cars!
