Check out TerraMax and the Lone Wolf, side by side. TerraMax is the largest vehicle in the Urban Challenge and the Lone Wolf is the smallest.
We had 2 runs today.
On the first run, after a great start, we encountered an unusual
condition. Upon restart, the Lone Wolf
took off at a good clip and drove around parked cars, cones and barrels. In our next run, we were tested extensively
on interacting with live traffic at 4 way intersections. The Lone Wolf appeared to perform flawlessly

video and data from the runs this evening in great detail and are looking
forward to that.

We’re getting back to the hotel earlier tonight than usual,

is a lot of fun at the Urban Challenge, but it is also intense and tiring. We are trying to get out each day’s pictures,
but get a bit behind from time to time.
Please check back for more photos.
