    DARPA Urban Challenge
    This weekend DARPA handed out $3.5 million to three teams competing in a driving version of the Robot World Cup. The vehicles had to navigate a staged urban setting, obeying California traffic laws and avoiding stunt drivers, all without any intervention by humans.

    The winner, named "Boss", came from Carnegie Mellon University and perhaps won due to gutsier decision making.



    MIT's vehicle, pictured above, failed to avoid another car reversing away from a traffic jam and plowed into the back of it.

    DARPA hopes to replace a third of the US Military's vehicles with autonomous ones by 2015.
