In our news roundup last week we included a link to a press release about the folks in NC State’s College of Engineering (led by Wesley Snyder, professor of electrical and computer engineering) who developed a computer program that “allows a car to stay in its lane without human control, opening the door to the development of new automobile safety features and military applications that could save lives.” Last night, WRAL aired a story about the research and included video of a miniature motorized Jeep using the technology.  Take a look.
