The Red Team from the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University recently broke a record by driving a robotic vehicle 200 miles around a race track. It's car, Sandstorm, was originally a 1986 HMMWV, or High Mobility Multi-purpose Wheeled Vehicle. The vehicle ran in the 2004 DARPA challenge but has been re-equipped with a new engine, shocks and GPS sensors. Here, it's doing the "Pork Chop" maneuver.
