In 2005, DARPA put on a race to see if robots could traverse a long, rough desert track with no user intervention called the DARPA Grand Challenge. The last time I saw this race, the robots could not even finish a quarter of the course. However, The challengers have learned from the past and have improved their methods. Check out this great documentary on the difficulties the competitors faced!
