[find] Grand Challenge

The Grand Challenge. Not 1, 2, 3, but 4 robots completed!

What an amazing demonstration of the accelerated speeds of technology evolution. Last year, the robot that went the farthest completed 7 miles. This year, four robots completed the more difficult, 132-mile route, all right around the race limit of 10 hours.

Or is it that, $2 Million dollars make for an excellent motivator? Whatever works!
