The humans the car did not kill.

My alma mater, CMU, won the DARPA city challenge in which they had to build — and successfully deploy — an autonomous vehicle in a simulated city environment. Sure, any schlub can send a robot car across the desert. But can you send it through the mean streets of Scranton, PA or a simulation thereof? Didn’t think so.

The Register has coverage of the entire event, but here’s to CMU for building a car that could finish a 60 mile course without veering off into the surrounding scrublands and becoming sentient, eventually killing the population of Flagstaff, Arizona before being destroyed by Special Forces.
