Watching the DARPA Urban Challenge

Not sure how much time is left but you might have a couple of hours to take in some of the DARPAweb cast Urban Challenge . You'd think that it would be terribly boring but in fact it's oddly exciting, particularly when you consider that there is no driver, no remote control, these machines are driving themselves! The commentators have alluded to some near misses and "contact" but overall it seems as though there is a great deal of success. As I am watching there are 6 vehicles still in the running. It's interesting to see just how well they drive...
