“low-cost, multi-unit, home-made 3D radar system, Budisteanu was able to achieve excellent results. In fact, the vehicle performed flawlessly in 47 of 50 simulations, only failing to recognize some people at a distance of 20 to 30 meters.
For Budisteanu’s efforts, he was awarded $75,000, and a Romanian company has already offered to fund his research and give him the opportunity to create a prototype driverless car. “
