This "Grand Challenge" is intended to
accelerate the development of autonomous vehicle technologies.
In July 2002, the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced that it would award a cash prize of $1 Million to the team that builds an autonomous robotic ground vehicle that will successfully win a race from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.
The race will include on-road and off-road navigation and must be completed in under ten hours. The date of the race is set for March 13, 2004.
