PS3 Being Used For Autonomous Racing For DARPA Urban Challenge

Axion Racing was the first team to autonomously drive up to the top of Colorado's Pike Peak and now leads the way by finding cutting edge uses for the beleaguered Sony PS3. This two time DARPA Grand Challenge qualifier is the first racing team to implement Yellow Dog Linux and a Sony PlayStation game console to manage one of seven autonomous vehicle cameras.

Axion Racing's Sony PS3, sensors, lights, sounds, and the autonomous vehicle's other computers are powered by a Marine battery unit that allows Spirit to run unmanned for many hours. Who knows, maybe a little autonomous racing success is just what's needed to improve sales numbers for the Sony PlayStation 3.

The story is too old to be commented.
