Building robotic cars at Stanford University
Mike Montemerlo is the artificial intelligence guy on Stanford University’s DARPA challenge team. Basically, they are building a robotic car that’ll be able to negotiate a course without humans being involved. He also thinks about the act of driving in a much different way than you or I do. This is a fascinating discussion where he talks about the car, the sensors used, the algorithms he’s developing, and the approach he’s using to get a car through an intersection at the same time as another robotic car is there.
