1) What is so Hard about the Problem that DARPA has created for these robots? -- The robots not only have to complete obstacles they have to keep their speed up and they only have 4 tries. The race that was in the Mohave Desert confused the robots (none finished) none made it past the half way mark. No robots actually made it past 7 miles. Rough terrain, shadows, rocks, everything is against robots. They have 10 hours and it all is timed. Also, it is the longest distance a robot has ever driven itself. 2) What are the intelligent features of the Carnegie Mellon robots that their team leader thinks are promising? -- “Global explorers” work on a system of lasers that is diagonal, both bumpy and flat/smooth, the laser system combines the use of viewing the world in laser terrain and in numbers. Plus the leader is putting in two robots. A high powered laser is inside a dome roof, high powered laser/sensor acts like an animals neck so that the pounding of the vehicle doesn’t matter. They call it a “steady gaze” gimbal mounted laser. Red team also breaks down the race road into sections. Each inch has a set speed. And the team also configures the specific direction of the robot for each road section. 3)
