Global TransPark to host display of Lone Wolf autonomous vehicle

May 24, 2007
The North Carolina Global TransPark Authority will host a display of the Lone Wolf, an autonomous vehicle designed by Insight Racing and the College of Engineering at NC State University.

This event will be held on Friday, May 25 at 2:30 p.m. at the TransPark Center located at at 3800 Highway 58 North near Kinston.

The car’s developers hope that the vehicle will be chosen to compete in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Grand Challenge on November 3, 2007.

DARPA created the Grand Challenge events to advance unmanned vehicle driving technology more rapidly, answering a Congressional mandate to convert one-third of military vehicles to driverless, computer-driven mode by 2015.
