Oshkosh Truck makes the DARPA Finals

Truck's TerraMax will compete as a finalist in this weekend's DARPA unmanned urban challenge:

Team Oshkosh's 15-ton truck is so big that officials had to resize one of the qualifying courses for it. But, said Tether, it performed better than any other bot on that course, Test Area A, the left-turn-and-merge course.

Now the finalists have a day and a half to make final adjustments to their bots while DARPA officials prepare the race track for the 6-hour, 60 mile race.

Oddly this is just the icing on the cake for a day when Truck released last quarter's profit statement -- which are up 74%, by the way

Well done ...
