Some Good Monster Truck News (for a Change)

This is very cool:
A unit of Oshkosh Corp. said Monday it signed a research and development deal with the Army for refining the technology that enables unmanned ground vehicles to operate in a convoy.

The three-year collaboration between Oshkosh Defense and the U.S. Army's Tank and Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center will focus on upgrading Oshkosh's unmanned TerraMax vehicle.

"The objective is to create a lead (unmanned) vehicle that can navigate and operate in missions, while communicating route information to another unmanned follower vehicle," Oshkosh said in a news release.
We here at the Chief got a kick out of the TerraMax when it competed the DARPA Urban Challange in 2007.

Here are few more during the run up to the competition.
