Make your Subaru Semi-Autonomous!
Wait what did you just say?!?! And NO way I would be able to do that or afford it! A decent small LIDAR is $25K!!! no way I can do it for under $1,000!! IMPOSSIBLE!!
Ladies and gents may I introduce you to the amazing company startup by George Hotz - Comma Ai. He has created a self-driving car kit that integrates into your vehicles existing systems to make it drive itself. Believe it or not but most new cars are fully capable with features like adaptive cruise, and lane keep assist systems being more common making the software the only reason your new Subaru can't drive itself and that's where OpenPilot comes in. Read more about Comma Ai and OpenPilot HERE.
Although OpenPilot is only officially supported by select Hondas, Toyotas, and a few other select cars, with some others being community maintained; everything is open source and hackable with much of the community "porting" other cars teams exist for Subaru, Hyundai, GM, Ford and more to get OpenPilot running, Today we will be talking about Subaru! I happen to be part of team #Subaru working with others to get Legacy/Outback Supported, there are also others working on others like Impreza.
And good news! As of the last update of this article we have it "running" on Legacy/Outback, we've seemed to make the most progress. And good news! We currently have OpenPilot "running" but is still in development and needs more tuning. It Should be ready soon!
Stop teasing! I MUST HAZ!!
Okay, put your pot on simmer, I will now get to the meaty goodness!

What Do I Need??
You need only 3 things to get running an EON, Panda, and Subaru Giraffe. If you would like you can buy the whole kit from me preloaded with our development code (some code modifications may be needed based off car model) Simply Contact Me I'll sell everything you need to get started for $850! Or if you would like you can buy everything individually.
