Team LUX readies sleek Passat TDI for DARPA Urban Challenge
Developed by Team LUX, which is sponsored and staffed by a company called Sick and its Ibeo automotive division, the LUX car will have just two laser sensors located up front and one in back to help it blindly navigate the Urban Challenge course. The team says despite the lack of ostentatious gear, its minimalist approach will still provide a full 360 degress of detection. The real test will be whether the Team LUX car parks itself on top of an undetected fire hydrant during the competition. AutoblogGreen will be on-site at the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge to bring us reports on which cars can successfuly operate without a master.
