iPad Car Control App

Earlier this week, we wrote about Google’s plans for a self-driving car. As tends to be the case in the automotive world, the Germans already have something even cooler in the works.

How do you get any cooler than an autonomous car? Try an autonomous car controlled by an iPad.

Developed by the AutoNOMOS Labs project at Germany’s Freire University, this project combines a modified Volkswagen Passat.

Check out this video to see the first autonomous German taxi ride, all controlled using an iPad. I'm still not quite sold on the concept of self-driving cars but I love the idea!
