Three engineering students in India have created a battery-powered autonomous car. The AP video doesn't go into any lot of details, but explains that the students have hooked up a microprocessor to the steering unit and powertrain, thrown in an obstacle identification system to the car - which itself runs on a 24-volt battery - and let it loose on the field. The technology is at an early stage (the car moves slow, and even then has problems), but the students hope it can be adapted to things like lawnmowers and military vehicles.

Warning, if you try to watch the video, you need to sit through an annoying commercial first.
