  • Urban road race

    This is wild! Can you imagine a time in the future when you don't drive your car but your car drives itself?

    Urban road race to test limits of robotic cars - In what sounds like a science fair project on steroids, engineers at Stanford University plan to have an unmanned robot car ready to navigate urban traffic in less than a year.

    The car, a 2006 Volkswagen Passat wagon dubbed Junior, is Stanford's newest competitor in a high-stakes road race sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the U.S. Department of Defense's research and development arm.

    The Stanford car will compete in the agency's third and most challenging derby **** the DARPA Urban Challenge, in which robotic cars will drive in a mock city environment. Cars must merge, navigate traffic, traverse busy intersections, avoid obstacles and master the most delicate of skills **** determining who has the right of way.

    Keep an eye on that technology. *Seriously. *The day may come we can download our schedules into a robotic mower and send it off. *Last year the race took place in a desert, rocky, obstruction filled environment and a bunch finished the race.

      I think that I saw that on tv too. Pretty amazing!
