projects, from game emulators to cameras in the sky. This talk is fun for
both experienced builders and novices, so feel free to bring along kids,
friends, neighbours, and anyone else you think might like to get started

*Autonomous Vehicles*

Mr. Randall led the Insight Racing team in the DARPA (Defense Advanced
Research Projects Agency) Grand Challenge series of races. Insight Racing’s
last entry was a computer driven Lotus Elise which was developed in
conjunction with NC State University. The Elise would drive through city
traffic without remote control or any human intervention whatsoever. Mr.
Randall will discuss how the team was put together and review the
architecture of the autonomous vehicle.  He will also discuss the future of
autonomous vehicles.    http://www.insightracing.org/

Mr. Randall also wants to discuss a group project to develop a life-like
humanoid robot that can interact using a natural language interface. Many
aspects of this projects will be described and discussed. He is looking for
participation from anyone that is interested.
