Robotic Cars

Highway 1 is a twisting, two lane, Pacific coast road.
I read about this in the New York Times. It was like a story from a silly tabloid, except it was true. Google's sending robotically driven cars down California's fabled Highway 1. Seven cars, six modified Toyota Priuses and one Audi TT, have driven thousands of miles without the direct control of a driver as part of a little known project led by Google.

I posted the story on Digital Journal.

Taken at the DARPA National Qualification Event, October 24 - 31, 2007. Google vehicles do not carry as much hardware on their roofs as this car.
