Description:

This article from EE Times tracks the status of Team Overbot, "a group of enthusiasts, engineers, and partners" who are building an autonomous robot vehicle for the October 8, 2005 DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) Grand Challenge. The annual Challenge, sponsored by DARPA, requires designers to develop an autonomous robot vehicle that can successfully make a trek through all kinds of terrain covering about 150 miles. The prize of $2 million has proven difficult to win, with none of the vehicles finishing last year's course. The article describes the contest and this team's design methodology.
