Car powered by Mac OS X
The Mac OS X powered self-driving car, "Dora", finished only one of four regular runs in its attempt to qualify for the finals of the 2005 DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) . "We had a near perfect run in the morning and just needed to finish the afternoon run to qualify for the finals. Unfortunately, our over-conservative driving strategy caused Dora to think she was boxed in by a single traffic cone, thus ending her run for $2 million."
