DARPA Grand Challenge - Stanford Racing

New Scientist is covering Stanley, Stanford's entry for the DARPA Grand Challenge. Clocking hundreds of miles of practice, the Stanford team is confident of Stanley's chances to outperform its rivals in the race this fall. Unlike the 2004 race where many of vehicles had not even been tested, many teams this time around are already in the testing phase and the teams have been able to refine the sensor systems and driving algorithms. Stanley has already driven dozens of miles along last year's course.

The team's website is at www.stanfordracing.com.
