I have this setup on my 2019. Also had it on my 2016 civic.
Best aftermarket piece of equipment you could ever invest in. It makes me smile from ear to ear everyday. Such an amazing system. George hotz is the king.

That dude said the device drives better than he does.
Does anyone know where he lives? I hope he is nowhere close to where I am

On highway driving it is actually way smoother than a human. There would be several cases in which it is much better than a human.

I only recently became aware of this from a comment in another thread from Breaultk where we were discussing the camera assembly behind the windshield and effects of replacing the windshield and it's possible impact to camera calibrations.

It's a very interesting system and I think it will help drive the advancement pace of self-driving systems over the long term. How it is implemented and configured makes sense to me. Not sure I want to mess with it though, since it is effectively an aftermarket hack of your vehicles systems. Not that an intelligent hack is a bad thing.. but as these become more visible to consumers there is a risk of the uninformed consumer to install one and not do it properly. As a retired electrical engineer, I don't see major risks with this system in properly trained hands, it's the rookie owners I worry about.

The real concern for me personally is if I did properly install and configure the system for my vehicle, and then the vehicle was in an accident (even if no fault of my own)... will the insurance adjusters use it as an excuse to deny a claim, and maybe even cancel my policy? I don't know the answer to that and I don't think anyone else does either. AND.. since it is effectively level-2 self-driving.. it's not something that can be safely left unattended by the driver, and I do worry that drivers get over confident in the system and take their attention off the road. It certainly takes workload off the driver, which is good, but it is actually the drivers attention that is critical with these systems and in this age of the non-attentive drivers playing with their phones rather then paying attention to their driving.. this system represents an additional point of risk, which could have life threatening impact to other drivers if the vehicle driver is non-attentive.

Net net: use with caution, be fully informed and qualified in doing so, and know it's limitations and stay within those limitations.

Agreed. On a long drive on the highway this could avoid alot of drivers swerving off the road and hitting the ditch for whatever reason.

It really shines on a long trip

In my observation though... ACC + LKAS will do this for us right out of the box. My observation with LKAS though is it tends to wander a bit within the lane, then again.. so do drivers. :)

I trust your input on it being a more refined result with this system though.

It's not just refined though. It changes the way the vehicle drives. Geohot tried to mimic GM Super Crusie and Tesla Autopilot to make Openpilot above and beyond what the Honda system is capable of stock.

I'm fairly sure the interaction timeout is programmed

Yes, of course it is. I'm just stating that the stock system is far more restrictive than openpilot.
And not to mention the endless tuning and configurations you can make with openpilot.
If you don't like the way Its driving, change it.

Your insurance company denying your claim would be the least of your problems. In a court case the plaintiffs lawyers would have you for lunch! If someone died you could be looking at serious jail time. BTW this software has been mentioned before on the forum.

I agree with you on this. At the end of the day... it opens you up to liabilities that could be mind boggling in severity, particularly if a life was lost (regardless if the AI system was at fault or not.. it will be blamed and it will beg the question as to what other modifications you made to your vehicle).

I'm assuming he's asking if it autosteers for merging and lane changes.

And yes I believe there is lane change assist.
There is no lane change assist in openpilot. Unlike Tesla which will send you to the next lane if you signal into it. Openpilot does not do this

I believe someone has tapped into the blind spot monitors on the Toyota and added lane change assist, though not in the official comma.ai release. No one has done it to the Crv but it is possible. Join the discord room if you want to stay on top of development.
