Darpa Urban Challenge 2007

This summer I wrote shortly about the Darpa Challenge. (More specifically on the Google Tech Talk on the Darpa Challenge 2006.) The finals for the this year's challenge, the Darpa Urban Challenge are coming up. I'm really curious who's going to win this year! And if the contestants will be able to ride the whole route.

Last year the autonomous vehicles had to drive over a route with no everyday obstacles (but that was difficult enough). This year the vehicles will have to move through a mock urban area, with regular streets, cars parked along the way, crossroads, etc. The finals will be on Nov. 3 and you can follow it via a live webcast.
