Robotic Prius Cases SF

New, 4 comments

A 28-year-old computer engineer built himself a robotic Prius and had it take itself for a spin in San Francisco last week. Unmanned, but escorted by the police and a camera crew, the Pribot, as it's called, started at Pier 7, drove along the Embarcadero, turned onto the Bay Bridge, and then exited at Treasure Island. No one was hurt, though the Pribot scraped its left side on a ramp. (If the huggable hybrid did go crazy, we wonder, how would the cops have stopped it?) [CNET]
