October 28 at the Urban Challenge
Filed under: AT THE RACE
Posted by: @ 8:45 pm

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
for 25 minutes.  We will analyze our
video and data from the runs this evening in great detail and are looking
forward to that.

 For the next 3 days, we will have only 1 run a day, on each
of the three courses.  We start with
Course A tomorrow, which last time tested left hand turns across traffic. There
is no way to know whether the mission will be changed by DARPA until we get
there.

 The Lotus engineers developed a new structure to help
protect the electronics on the top of the car. 
The structure should also help other robots see us better.  

We’re getting back to the hotel earlier tonight than usual,
so hope to get some much needed rest.  It
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.
