Robotic Desert Racing
The Grand Challenge was a 300km autonomous robotic desert race. We are out to
win with two HUMMERS, fast autonomous navigation technology, and a great team.
The race is a winner-take-all, autonomy-only rumble across 300 kilometers of desert trails, mountains and wide-open flats. 118 teams are vying for 20 starting positions, and on race day only one will win. The Red Team is playing to win, with world-class terrain modeling, robotic vehicles, and blazing-fast navigation.
