A robotic vehicle that can drives itself in traffic is seen during the DARPA Urban Challenge. It was designed, and constructed by the MIT students.

The Land Rover LR3is decked out with $400,000 worth of gizmos and gadgets. Fifteen radars, 13 remote sensing lasers -- called lidars-- and six cameras feed a computer that will ultimately drive the car.

Although it is for a national competition, it does have real-world application. The military is interested in the robotic technology, and automakers want the computer software.
