Darpa Runs Robo-Racers Off Road

After inviting every robot maker with a dream to take part in the Grand Challenge, Darpa, the
Defense Department’s research arm, has suddenly declared that only 20 drone
roadsters will be allowed to enter. This may not mean much to the
conglomerate-sponsored, university-backed outfits in the race. But bootstrapping
crews like Chabe’s six-man Team LoGhIQ now may not make
the cut. —Noah Schachtman
