Pentagon restores cash prizes in urban robot race

The Pentagon reversed course Friday and announced it will restore cash prizes to the top three finishers of a robot race set for next year.

The robotic vehicles must navigate in under six hours a complex 60-mile test course designed like a real city street filled with moving manned and unmanned vehicles. Participants will be tested on how well they make sharp turns, navigate traffic circles and avoid obstacles such as utility poles, trees and parked cars.
