Panda (White)

This is the White Panda. It has USB and WiFi connectivity.
It is not necessarily the recommended Panda now a days for using with Openpilot.

It works great for interfacing with your vehicle and hacking against it but it is not the best experience for openpilot seeking users.

Keep this in mind.

Panda is designed for all cars produced since 2008 (and many earlier models). Panda firmware is released under the MIT license.

About the Panda

Panda is the nicest universal car interface ever. It allows you full access to the many communication buses of your car from a computer or a phone.

Panda+cabana (https://cabana.comma.ai/) is like a fitness tracker for your car. Track your RPMs, MPG, cornering G-force, battery life, and so much more.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between a white Panda and Grey Panda?

White Pandas have WiFi and no GPS and are better suited for CAN hacking, and may not be supported in the future for OpenPilot. Grey Pandas have no WiFi but have precision GPS that will enable future capabilities such as HD Maps. The EON has its own WiFi hotspot built-in, so the lack of WiFi on the Grey Panda does not prevent logging into the EON via SSH, for example.

What are HD maps?

HD maps will open the possibilities for better localization and more human-like driving. For example, it should allow the car to plan for upcoming intersections and curves, and steer the car at an appropriate speed.
