openpilot is an open source driver assistance system. Currently, openpilot performs the functions of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Automated Lane Centering (ALC), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) for a growing variety of supported car makes, models, and model years. In addition, while openpilot is engaged, a camera-based Driver Monitoring (DM) feature alerts distracted and asleep drivers. See more about the vehicle integration and limitations.
To use openpilot in a car, you need four things:
- Supported Device: a comma 3/3X, available at comma.ai/shop.
- Software: The setup procedure for the comma 3/3X allows users to enter a URL for custom software. Use the URL
openpilot.comma.aito install the release version.
- Supported Car: Ensure that you have one of the 250+ supported cars.
- Car Harness: You will also need a car harness to connect your comma 3/3X to your car.

- openpilot has software-in-the-loop tests that run on every commit.
- The code enforcing the safety model lives in panda and is written in C, see code rigor for more details.
- panda has software-in-the-loop safety tests.
- Internally, we have a hardware-in-the-loop Jenkins test suite that builds and unit tests the various processes.
- panda has additional hardware-in-the-loop tests.
- We run the latest openpilot in a testing closet containing 10 comma devices continuously replaying routes.
By default, openpilot uploads the driving data to our servers. You can also access your data through comma connect. We use your data to train better models and improve openpilot for everyone.
openpilot is open source software: the user is free to disable data collection if they wish to do so.
openpilot logs the road-facing cameras, CAN, GPS, IMU, magnetometer, thermal sensors, crashes, and operating system logs. The driver-facing camera is only logged if you explicitly opt-in in settings. The microphone is not recorded.
