DARPA Grand Challenge NQE underway.

The DARPA Grand Challenge National Qualification Event has taken place for the past several days, more information can be found on this brochure. A good blog on the event can be found here. Meanwhile, since we have been eliminated for this year's event, we are playing with Google Maps technology and are evaluating how it can be applied to our display of engineering data. John Wiseman did a great job of displaying last year's DARPA race through Google Maps. We just used it to display places on the Paris map for the "Nuit Blanche" event. We feel it has a good potential when applied to the data we are making freely available from our test runs.
