CNN on autonomous car sponsored by MDV

Link: Urban road race to test limits of robotic cars.

I’m very excited to attend the event later this year – one of my genius colleagues, Sven, was lead engineer in last year’s winning entry for the DARPA Grand Challenge. It’ll be great to see the MDV logo on a car trying to navigate an urban traffic setting.

Here’s what will be expected of them:

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.

Maybe we are closer to Terminator than we thought? :)
