Sting Racing second follow-up

Posted by Humphrey Cheung

Victorville (CA) – Sting Racing’s bot “Sting 1” had another scrape with a concrete wall at the DARPA Urban Challenge in Victorville California.  The collision happened Sunday, one day after the robotic car spectacularly smashed into another concrete wall.  Team members say the damage from Sunday's collission was very minor and that the sensors were still functional.

Magnus Egerstedt, Software Lead of the team, told us that the team’s spirits are still high, but it’s now crunch time.  “Now it’s time to get serious, we can’t fool around anymore,” he said.
