New Delhi :

If you have seen news reports of Google bragging about its self driving car, don't worry there is an Indian who has accompalished similer goals.

The car developed by a Kerala man has all the usual functions, but an additional unique one - it can drive itself. You read that right! It's a self-driving car. 

The car is designed by Roshy John, Practice Head at Tata Consultancy Services who has been the technology for the past 5 years now.

And, you will be surprised to know that he devised the technology on sister company's product Tata Nano.

According to John, "Tata Nano is the cheapest automobile in the world and its rear-engined layout allows me to place an array of sensors in the front of the vehicle."

"It's a cute little car. I mounted cameras on real vehicles and made it drive on (sic) real cities to which would help us to tune the algorithm to make it work in real time," John explains in his YouTube video.
