Low-cost autonomous car technology aims to reduce deaths, pollution

On May 17 in Phoenix, Ariz., 19-year-old Ionut Budisteanu won first place at the International Science and Engineering Fair—including a $75,000 scholarship—for building a different kind of car than most teenagers are used to driving.

According to NBC News, the high school student from Romania invented a self-driving car that is far less expensive than other models that are already in the works. Budisteanu decided to use artificial intelligence in order to decrease the overall cost of technology in self-driving cars.
