self driving ride on toy car

my kid had a ride in a tesla and now demands his own mini self driving car. he's also useless about not running me over with it.  i want to tackle this problem instrument the car and allow him free reign to drive it about knowing he won't be able to crash.

    Hello Paul,

    Thank you for the submission.

    It would be great if you can provide detailed schematics and how many boards you need. Can you explain how you are planning to use TAPAS as part of your project?

    We are waiting for your response as the deadline is approaching fast.

    Best Regards,

    Matthias Fella

    Hey Paul,

    I want to add to your submission some important notice: I like the idea of a mini self driving car, but we have a problem here (I cite the README from the official github repo):

    "The TAPAS community inverter board is not a toy! It is intended for laboratory use only and may only be operated by experienced personell (engineers, scientists, qualified makers)." [https://github.com/SDI-SoftwareDefinedInverter/TAPAS/blob/master/README.md]

    You can of course come up with another pitch of your idea, but the intend to build toys can unfortunately not be considered.
