They’re Back

So, they’re at it again. Those robot vehicles in search of
Sarah Connor
tasked with driving a course without human
intervention. The last DARPA
Grand Challenge
wasn’t exactly a ringing success but with the
cash prize doubled to $2 million USD, things are heating up.

Starting tomorrow through October 5th, 43 teams are vying for
20 slots in the final challenge set for October 8th. In order to
get to the finals in Nevada, the teams must compete in
preliminary heats at the California Speedway in Fontana,
California.

The finals will require the robotic vehicles to travel a
150-mile (about 240km) course within 10 hours (about 10 hours).
The course route will not be announced until two hours prior to
the start.

Aloha!
