If the one's you're working on are w...

Today, we make a parking sensor using a sonic range finder, just like in the vehicles our owners drive!
Self-driving vehicles may be the apex of safe driving, taking human error out of the equation. Until then, augmented reality can help reduce accidents by improving driver awareness.

The LLV is right-side steering, so the driver's side is the passenger's side on the S-10. It's a little confusing, so be careful.
