[00:00:00] M.I.T. students play with rubber duckies to better understand the science of self-driving cars. The goal of the Duckietown project was for the class of students to build 50 self-driving taxis that could navigate roads with a single on-board camera and no pre-programmed maps. Duckietown is a project from M.I.T.'s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and is a collaborative project involving dozens of students and several other M.I.T. departments. It was funded, in part, by the National Science foundation. The

[00:00:30] Duckietown platform is also being used to prototype algorithms in conjunction with CSAIL's recently announced $25 Million collaboration with Toyota on autonomous cars. More Duckietown video and details can be found at CSAIL.MIT.EDU. For Autoblog I'm Eddie Sabatini.
