No Riders: Desert Crossing Is for the Robots Only:: New York Times on robots for the Grand Challenge race in about a week. As expected, high level articles miss many important details. BUT, it's nice to see good press coverage.

You might also be depressed when you look at the RedTeam site, where apparently they went too fast around a turn and tipped their vehicle. This shouldn't be too bad, because they have sufficient replacement parts and working around the clock is normal for them. Amazingly, most of the hardware didn't fail, and the computers were still running. This brings new meaning to "crash resistant hardware & software”, no?
