A group of students at Standford University are putting together a car that can run itself without needing a driver, the goal is to race the car on the treacherous winding roads of Pikes Peak in the Rocky Mountains next year.
Imagine driving at top speed on a steep, winding mountain pass in the Alps, the Himalayas or the Rocky mountains. Now, take your hands off the steering wheel and cover your eyes. Or grab a camera and take some pictures of the snowy mountain peaks. Or send a text message to a friend describing the scenery.
