To create a fleet of autonomous electrical vehicles to provide the public with an affordable alternative to the standard transportation model. Our cars will be fully Electric Autonomous Daimler AG Smart Cars.
Our long term vision is to create an autonomous vehicle network(The AutoNet), however in order to do that, we need a successful, working prototype. Our Prototype is heavily influenced by the 2004/5 DARPA Grand Challenge as well as the DARPA 2007 Urban Challenge vehicles in that our prototype will employ similar technology, employing such sensors as Laser Range-Finder(LiDAR), Radar, cameras and a GPS system.
Though our aim is to be a global company that provides everyone access to our service, we hope to launch initially in New York City.

Join the revolution!
Our motivation for creating the autonomous vehicle network is to make the open road available to everyone.
I saw that my life was a vast glowing empty page and I could do anything I wanted. - Jack Kerouac
In the current state of personal transportation, the very old, the very young, and the disabled are left with very few choices in modes of transportation. Even healthy young adults have to deal with rising gas prices and expensive car maintenance. We view our CloudCar network as a viable alternative to the status quo. We also admit that safety is our highest concern in building our vehicles, so we can't state a specific date that they will be available to the public. But with your help, we can begin developing safe operating software for our cars and make the open road truly available to everyone.
If we reach our goal
We also urge people to continue backing us even if we've met our goal of building one car, the more funding we receive, the more prototypes we can build to expedite the development process and begin creating the AutoNet.
Backers at the $100 level receive a T-shirt of their choice(don't forget to tell me whether you want orange or white) which grants you a tour of our office as well as a free ride on our test track once our vehicle is able to safely traverse it.
