Auto Pilot

September 30, 2007 By News Staff

A self-driving vehicle developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a semifinalist in the 2007 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

Urban Challenge -- a competition for cars and trucks that run without human help. MIT's vehicle and its team of student and faculty developers will travel to an urban military training facility in Victorville, Calif., in late October to compete against 35 other robotic vehicles from across the country.

In the semifinals and finals, held in early November, the robots will execute simulated military supply missions in a mock urban area while obeying California traffic laws. - MIT
