Autonomous land vehicles - drivers not required


 


Dear Fellow Computer Science Enthusiasts


 


10/9 was a giant leap for R&D in CS; a completely autonomous land vehicle completed a 131.6 miles track and won $2 mil in DARPA challenge. I’ve been following this competition closely for two years now and disappointed that MIT / CMU’s Red team couldn't make it. Alan Turing was seldom asked for things computer can’t do, which he mentioned in his 1950’s famous paper as computer can’t do X (list includes enjoying strawberry and driving in middle of Cairo). Cairo or not, now we have machines which can autonomously drive and vehicles on variant terrains…Woo Ho!
