Urban Challenge: Project Web Hosting - Open Source Software
DARPA (US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) ran its Urban Challenge race in 2007 to show that cars can drive themselves in the city. The Seattle Robotics Society (SRS) invented the Robo-Magellan contest to make the challenge of autonomous vehicles affordable to the robot hobbyist. This web site poses a new Urban Challenge: achieve order of magnitude improvements in both energy efficiency and safety. To see how this is possible,
This is the Robo-Magellan project ("urbanchallenge")
This project was registered on SourceForge.net on Feb 12, 2007. It was originally directed at a simulator for autonomous driving. The present emphasis is on building real vehicles. It aims to show that autonomy is an affordable technology that can have a major impact on reducing green house gases.
