Too awesome. Thrun and company (the Stanford team who won the off-road DARPA Grand Challenge robot-driving competition) are still at it.
It'd even be more awesome if they equipped it with an oscillation overthruster.
I'm disappointed. The thread title kind of made it sound as if the car had gone rogue.
It better go at Mars rover speed on Pikes Peak. I say this as someone that has challenged Pikes Peak...in video games.
I LOVED Pikes Peak in Dirt.
In real life? I only drove up once as a child (my dad drove, ok?) and I lived in Colorado Springs for 20 years.
