Autopilot Is So Last Year: Our Chevrolet Bolt EV Is Driven By A FROG! 🐸

From Transport Evolved.

Last year, as part of our series in giving an older EV a new life, we installed a Comma 3 semi-autonomous driver assistance system in our 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, giving the car the same kind of hands-off driving capabilities as Ford’s BlueCruise and GM’s Supercruise. (Watch the video on that here: https://youtu.be/U5pBTjR0rJ4)

Today, we’re trying out a different fork of the OpenPilot software that’s compatible with our custom wiring loom and pedal interceptor: Frogpilot. https://github.com/FrogAi/FrogPilot

Here’s a brief overview, plus our thoughts after a few hundred miles with it.
