DARPA Grand Challenge - Indy Robot Racing

On May 12th, IRV, Indy Robotics submission to the DARPA Grand Challenge, successfully completed five unmanned demonstration course runs, including four obstacle avoidance tests. According to co-team leader Scott Jones:

"We didn’t just complete the runs successfully, we nailed today’s preliminary trials and proved to the DARPA officials that the Indy Robot Racing team is up for the Grand Challenge."

The Carmel, Indiana based team has documented the vehicles development with copious photos and videos.
