As I said in the rant, the key to winning the race will not be who has more or better toys or what-not. No. The answer is this: Less everything. Fewer bells and whistles both in hardware and software...and better, simpler software that does the job it needs to do..and do that job well...day after day...week after week...year after year...everytime you turn it on. Not only good sensors..but a well-thought out system to protect them when need be and constantly test them. I think a completely redundant main CPU would be a very good thing...one that could be designed with a fall-over feature.
