Tech Device that Makes Your Car Autonomous
Epilog AI has created a windshield-mounted device that taps into a car’s computer. Once connected, it uses Artificial Intelligence to automate city and highway driving.
This device, called Sherpa, is designed to complement a driver’s existing cruise control system. Users simply plug in the device to their vehicle, activate cruise control — and then Sherpa will automatically control acceleration, steering, and braking.
Furthermore, Sherpa evaluates a vehicle’s surroundings in real-time. This enables it to drive the vehicle in stop-and-go traffic, avoid obstacles on the road, and recognize stop signs and traffic lights.
Epilog has been granted eight patents for its device, with several additional patents pending. The company has a partnership with Jabil (NYSE: JBL), one of the largest product manufacturers in the world.
Epilog’s team of advisors include the former Director of Autonomous Vehicles at Sony (NYSE: SNE) and the former Director of Strategic Investment at Intel (Nasdaq: INTC).
