Big accessories: researchers create a self-driving car guided only by a Galaxy S II
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 08, 2013, 8:35 AM
Tommi Sullivan, Michael Lennon and Yukito Tsunoda from the university in Queensland, Australia, are utilizing just the GPS, sensors and camera in a Samsung Galaxy SII for their Smart Phone Automated Car. Check out the result in the video below.
Our ultimate goal is to implement our program and drive the car in the public environment, and we hope to one day see people using their smartphone to drive their cars in a real-life situation," say the researchers. We are dreaming of the time we'll just slot our phones in the car holder, and it will drive us home after the last night out, saving on the cab fare."

Very interesting indeed... I only wish my phone does not reboot or "crash" while driving me home...

Until when malware goes into the phone and it takes you on a drive on the opposite lane towards opposing traffic.
