George Hotz, founder of Silicon Valley self-driving car startup Comma.ai, presented at Mammel Hall on Tuesday, Dec. 19, as part of his company’s Self-Driving Car Awareness Week tour.
During his presentation, Hotz talked about three products that allow people to dig deeper into their car’s computer system and add support for Comma.ai’s self-driving software, OpenPilot.
The presentation, sponsored by the UNO’s Supply Chain Management program, was free and open to the public. UNO staff member Brevan Jorgenson helped organize the event.
A longtime member of the growing Comma.ai community, Jorgenson said he was “impressed by the depth of questions from the audience,” which included UNO students and Omaha community members.
