If it wasn't for MIT, the end of the race would have been boring. You could actually see MIT's car thinking. I heard that they never tested it in the desert because it was an 'Urban' challenge and that it made it's way through that one desert road by thinking it out on it's own for the first time. You could have put that thing anywhere and it would have completed it's mission. Carnegie and Standford have been driving in the desert for years and MIT has just began then months ago. Those hesitations here and there could be tweaked out in no time. I hope that they enter the next race.
