Ghostrider, the riderless motorcycle built to take on the DARPA challenge has to make it through qualifying if it’s going to run in the actual competition. So far, things have been a bit tough.
The Blue Team’s autonomous motorcycle “GhostRider” has always been an underdog at the Grand Challenge as no one expects a two-wheeled vehicle to successfully compete against SUVs, ATVs, and other off-road vehicles. GhostRider put up a good fight by going through about 50 percent of the course the first time and a little bit farther the second.
