QuattroCam

The comma.ai QuattroCam. Drive with the power of Quattro.


Why does it have four cameras? Because four is one more than three.
















Made in the comma.ai advanced research lab.

  1. Is this thing going to look at flashed lane markings / 2D road features for localization?

  5. Are you planning on aiming the cameras down at an angled mirror so the mirror takes all the rock hits and road grime? Cleaning both surfaces might be easier as the bug strikes would deflect. Rainex might be enough to keep the drops off. Radiator blockage and cosmetic acceptance may also be improved. Could design a prototype in a weekend if you wanted to see how the machine learns in this orientation.

    1. I think the camera will be behind the front window inside the car, impossible for rock and bug hits :)

    2. All the crowd sourced data could be from a phone attached to the bottom edge of the rear view mirror, as a guess. That way both sides are useful and people could get car specific brackets 3D printed from shapeways. But I thought the prototype was on the grill. And maybe there was some reason it had to be out front. People say that in California they get angry if you leave enough space to see the tires in stop and go traffic, because it takes more light cycles to get cars through. But inside behind the wiper swept windshield is better if small enough.

    Is there any plans to have a beta test in Ontario Canada
    Will this test be available for older vehicles like Mercedes Benz C 300
