This is a great talk by Sebastian at Google on winning the DARPA Grand Challenge:



The autonomous stunt helicopters we mention are a project run by Andrew Ng, a colleague of Sebastian's at Stanford. Check out the project's website if you missed earlier posts linking to it: http://heli.stanford.edu/

Also, anyone who's website is "robots.stanford.edu" you know is just awesome.

Apologies on the audio—we both took recordings but it gets a bit muffled when we walk down hallways single file.
