Self-driving car technology takes top prize at Intel science fair


The world’s largest science and engineering fair announced its winners Friday, with the three top winners walking away with big educational scholarships. Nineteen-year-old Ionut Budisteanu took the top prize ($75, 000) for his creation of affordable self-driving car technology. Google has been working on a self-driving car since 2010, and Budisteanu wanted to challenge their invention. He set out to create something that would work in a similar fashion but be much more affordable to the average driver.

The most expensive thing from the Google self-driving car is the high resolution 3-D radar, so I was thinking how I could remove it,” Budisteanu told NBC News.
