Autonomous VW Touareg Stanley Shines at Press Event
 
 

Volkswagen showed off the autonomous Touareg prototype that will take part in the DARPA Grand Challenge 2005 this autumn.

The Volkswagen Touareg called Stanley has been developed by the Electronics Research Laboratory (ERL) of Volkswagen and the Stanford University. Stanley was driving without a driver across a off road park in German Oschersleben.
Juergen H. was at the press-event and posted several photos on his blog.

The Stanley autonomous vehicle is based on a standard Touareg, but is rigged with tons of sensors including, radar, laser detectors and GPS. The brain of Stanley consists of 7 Intel Pentium motherboards running at 1.6Ghz. More details in this press-release (German).

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
