It's official, Stanley from Stanford has won the DARPA Grand Challenge 2005 and gets the $2 million prize! Five bots actually have crossed the finish line including Stanford's Stanley robot which finished 1st at 6 hours 53 minutes, Carnegie-Mellon's Red Teams with two bots the Sandstorm which finished 2nd at 7 hours 4 minutes and H1lander which finished 3rd at 7 hours 14 minutes, and Grey Team's GreyBot Kat-5 with finished 4th at 7 hours 30 minutes. Team TerraMax with the 6 wheeled TerraMax vehicle chugged along and just now finished but it has exceeded the 10 hour limit and finished with an unofficial time of over 27 hours. Congratulations to all involved in DARPA's Grand Challenge!
