DARPA Grand Challenge - Team Mojávaton

Team Mojávaton of Grand Junction, Colorado are preparing a 2001 Nissan Xterra 4x4 to compete in the DARPA Grand Challenge this Fall. The team already has an operational vehicle which it has been field testing.

They've posted an impressive video of the vehicle avoiding human cut-outs and navigating along a desert road.

The strength of the competitors this time around is impressive. I would venture to say that if a team hasn't been field testing its bot for a few months now, that it is going to be out of the running.
