No, I am not talking about a futuristic android hooker from the future. I am talking about the robotic Hummer that took pole position at this year’s DARPA Grand Challenge in the Mojave Desert. DARPA, the research and development arm of the Pentagon, is sponsoring the race for a second year. Last year none of the 15 entries managed to complete the 175 mile obstacle-laden course and claim the $1 million prize. This year the prize has been increased to $2 million. From the looks of it, Carnegie Mellon University’s robotic Hummer has a good chance of taking home the moolah.
