Drivers not required

A driverless Touareg could be seen driving around with precision at Motopark Oschersleben last Friday. It was a prototype Touareg, christened Stanley, which had a gaggle of gadgets that includes many sensors, 4 laser detectors, stereo-visual equipment, a 24 GHz radar system, and a highly accurate satellite guided GPS system. All the data collected by Stanley's many gizmos were processed by seven Pentium M motherboards each with a 1.6 GHz processor. All this for Volkswagen's entry into the Grand Challenge 2005 in the US, which is a unique race for driverless vehicles.
