Claim RbtCar - Autonomous Vehicle Win in 2004

Category: Science & Technology:Technology JUDGED at 0
Owner:2, Chris Hibbert
Judge:3126, Varulv
due date:2004/03/20

The Claim

DARPA is hosting a Grand Challenge competition among autonomous ground vehicles to see if any are capable of navigating from Barstow, California to Las Vegas, Nevada in 10 hours or less.

The race will be run on March 13 or March 14, 2004. If any vehicle crosses the finish line less than 10 hours after its start, then the vehicle with the shortest time will win $1 Million for its team. Otherwise, the race will be rerun until a winner is declared or DARPA's authorization to spend the money elapses.

This claim will be judged true if any team wins the prize during calendar 2004. 25 teams have entered.

The Competition's rules don't give a clear description of when the prize will be awarded, or whether challenges will be allowed. The judging date is a guideline, and actual events may not allow a prompt decision. The intent is to let DARPA's judging be conclusive.

Judge's Statement

I judge this claim as False because:

  1. There was no winner on 13 March 2004
  2. DARPA has said that «[it] will run the Grand Challenge for Autonomous Ground Vehicles approximately annually», which means that there won't be another Grand Challenge in 2004
