In the Urban Challenge, fully-autonomous ground vehicles will conduct simulated military supply missions in a mock urban area. The final event will be held on November 3, 2007 at a currently-unknown location in the western United States. Robotic vehicles will attempt to complete a 60-mile course through traffic in less than six hours, operating solely under their own computer-based control. To succeed, vehicles must obey traffic laws while safely merging into moving traffic, navigating traffic circles, negotiating busy intersections, and avoiding obstacles.
