During his speech at Disrupt Hotz stated that the Comma One would allow vehicles to drive from Mountain View to San Francisco without touching the wheel.
It doesn’t have many sensors because it relies on the built in car front radars. Though Hotz stated that the Comma One does come with a camera, which would allow video capture. We’re actually getting back the video, even Tesla isn’t doing that,” Hotz said. “We have all the video data.”
