Darpa Grand Challenge

Wired News: Now That’s Quite a Challenge

The Darpa Grand Challenge is a robot off-road race across the Mojave Desert that’s sponsored by the Defense Department. The robots must be completely autonomous, and the winner receives a million dollars. The contestants are college students, high school students, tinkerers, and entrepreneurs. The wired article talks about the problems all of the entrants are having while trying to qualify at the California Speedway. I would love to do something like this.
