Aerial View of Grand Challenge Course

Posted 5 Jul 2004 at 20:11 UTC by steve Share This

Tim Holt has created a web app that combines the 2004 DARPA Grand Challenge waypoint data with aerial images from the Terrasoft database to create an interactive aerial map of the Grand Challenge course. You can explore the map or jump directly to a waypoint of your choice. Images are at the 1 meter/pixel scale, and max off-track distance is represented to scale.

Hi can anyone give a downloadble full map of the DARPA Grand Challenge 2004?

There is also an MPEG movie, posted 8 Jul 2004 at 16:21 UTC by tim.holt » (Journeyer)

That's an 8 minute MPEG movie of the entire course being "driven". The movie speeds up and slows down depending on the max course speed.

The MPEG is fun, posted 8 Jul 2004 at 18:27 UTC by steve » (Master)

David Anderson brought a CD with the full-course MPEG to the DPRG meeting last Tuesday night and we watched it run through a couple of times. The number of way points and the speed limits changes (some of which seem a bit weird) make it hard to believe anyone could win the contest as-is. We were pretty sure even a human driver couldn't hit all the way points and keep the speed inside the constantly changing limits.
