Due to the nature of this competition, we see a very real possibility of incidental contact from other teams, at least in the first year. Because of this, we have chosen an expendable vehicle, a '84 Mercury Topaz, for use this year while we concentrate on sensors and sensor integration.
Here is a video showing the vehicle in it's current configuration. Note: a certain scientific magazine that proclaims itself "POPULAR" has asserted that this vehicle is Rusty. Look at the video as much as you like. You won't find any rust on our car!
