In October 2005, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) sponsored the DARPA Grand Challenge, a long-distance competitive technology event in the Mojave Desert for robotic vehicles. The autonomous vehicle above, called Dexter, was entered by ENSCO Inc. and placed sixth out of the 23 robotic vehicles competing in the final run of the challenge. The Volgenau School of Information Technology and Engineering is featuring the vehicle as part of National Engineers Week activities.
