Your very own autonomous vehicle.

Posted by ifitsgotanengine on October 11, 2005


What would you pay for a vehicle capable of finding its own way home from the bar?

With just a little bit more programming, this 4-wheeler just might be able to. It’s Team Buffalo’s entry into the 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge. You can read all about the Grand Challenge here.

My biggest disapointment with this auction is item number three in the important notes section of the listing:

“The winning bidder MUST PICK UP the vehicle from Team Buffalo’s shop. Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of this vehicle, Team Buffalo will not crate, package or ship the vehicle.”

I would have thought the winning bidder could send their address and have it drive itself home.
