DARPA Urban Challenge - 2007/11/02 19:26 This thread discusses the Content article: DARPA Urban Challenge

I remember watching the first grand challenge with a bunch of guys on a PC at University. It was a real shame the first race didnt go so well, but after the success of the second race Im sure this will turn out quite well.

Theres an interview by Sebastian Thrun on the grand challenge and autonomous vehicles. It makes for interesting listening:

Re:DARPA Urban Challenge - 2007/11/05 17:45 Thats pretty encouraging! I never saw the videos but I'll definately be having a look at that later on. Perhaps the days of congestion and bad driving are numbered!
