As self-driving cars push the transportation revolution, we reflect back on the competition that started it all. Today, on the 10-year anniversary of the DARPA Urban Challenge, Torc has grown its original team, gained a decade of experience, and continues to push its tech farther to make the impossible possible. #DUC #WinningTeams
Torc CEO Michael Fleming and Program Manager Jesse Hurdus recall Victor Tango's 3rd place win in the DARPA Urban Challenge, an event that brought together a winning team of engineers that have celebrated 10 years of growth in the autonomous vehicle industry. They tell the story of their autonomous car, Odin, navigating a challenging 60-mile course without a driver, and elaborate on Torc's growth in the past ten years.
"Being some of the early players in the self driving space that just have this passion to commercialize this technology...it's our life's work." - Michael Fleming
Here's to ten years of creating the impossible.
