Via BBC News – technology: Well done to Stanley and the other three autonomous robotic, souped-up SUVs which finished Darpa’s Grand Challenge race across the Mojave desert. It was a non starter last year.

One day these driverless freaks of engineering will deliver supplies to the military in dangerous conditions.

Personally, I can’t wait until they turn up as taxis. Ah. But then taxi drivers would be out of a job. OK, let them just drive me around since I failed my test twice.
