The Robots Are Coming

Three vehicles completed the second annual robot vehicle race, unlike last year when no one finished. The cars and trucks are completely autonomous—they have to use onboard sensors and computers to find their way around a 132-mile course that involves a mountain pass, three tunnels that block GPS, and numerous natural and artificial obstacles.

Of course, it would be even cooler if it weren't the damn Department of Defense sponsoring the whole thing. You can almost hear the whir of Cylons.
