At the 2013 Queensland iAwards in Brisbane, Australia, a team of information and communications technology (ICT) students from Griffith University won an award for designing a smartphone-driven automated vehicle. The key goal of the iAwards is to discover and reward ICT innovations that will have a positive impact in Australia and on a global scale. The Griffith University student team created a small prototype model of the autonomous car and designed some of its components using 3D printer technology. "A normal unmanned vehicle would usually use a camera or a different sensor on the top, but the uniqueness in this car is that most of the sensors are used from the mobile phone," said team member Michael Lennon.
