+ - Team to Use PS3,YDL in DARPA Urban Challenge

fistfullast33l writes: "While the PS3's Linux distribution has taken some hits for running inside a hypervisor that limits access to some hardware, the Axion Racing team has announced they will be using a PS3 running Yellow Dog Linux in their entry for the DARPA Urban Challenge in November 2007. "We felt having cars drive themselves was getting a little too easy, so we threw the Sony PlayStation into our bag of tricks," joked Bill Kehaly, Axion Racing's team leader. The PS3 will be in charge of examining information from an RGB road finding camera, and will be utilizing the Cell processor's multithreading capabilities to do so."
