DARPA Crew Readies for New Challenge

Oct. 24, 2006

"More than 20 University undergraduates and six professors are constructing an autonomous vehicle that can navigate a 60-mile simulated urban driving course in less than six hours.


"In the past, the challenge has required competitors to navigate self-driven vehicles along a 132-mile route through the Mojave Desert, riddled with both natural and man-made obstacles. This year, the challenge will ask competitors to navigate a simulated urban course, complete with lanes, intersections and traffic circles."
