Self-driving DIY Robocars: Donkeycars - the Dream

Main Stage South

Chris is creating a new surface area for developers to start working on self-driving car tech, once again pairing open source projects and community events at the foundation of a new industry. In 2007, Chris Anderson—NY Times best-selling author and at the time the editor-in-chief of Wired magazine—built his first drone at home with his kids using parts from a Lego Mind Machine. In 2012, he would co-found 3D Robotics, building the world’s largest community of DIY drone makers and the world’s leading open autopilot platform. Fast forward to today, Chris is CEO of 3DR, and now starting his latest side project Donkeycar racing. Yes, the opening question will be ‘Ok, WTF is a “Donkeycar”?’
