Just randomly found this on the net! pic is on the link http://www.formula-xtreme.com.au/xtremema.nsf/0/e7221a0d4b5fb246ca256e4a00722a2a?OpenDocument The American Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) have organized a $ 1 Million contest involving a 400km race through the Mojave Desert, from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. So what! you say, the interesting thing is that no-one is allowed to ride in or on the vehicles! They have to control the driving themselves and even more amazing a motorcycle is currently odds on favourite to win. The race includes on-road and off-road navigation and must be completed in less than ten hours. So the contestants will have built a vehicle that not only will be able to ride through the desert by itself, but also navigate and make decisions while competing against others to get to the finishing line first. Of the 25 contestants expected to line-up on March 13th this year, only one of them is a motorcycle, a motorcycle that will ride itself with the aid of a series of gyros and sophisticated computers. The two wheel idea came from a 23 year old Berkely University student , Anthony Levandowski. His creation, aptly named â€œGhost Rider Robotâ€, happily functions on its own. It can even stand stationary on its own two wheels without falling over, â€œSingle track (two wheel) vehicles cost less, are more efficient and can traverse more extreme environments because they only have conform to the terrain in one axis.â€ Commented Levandowski .
