Curiosity Rover Basically Gets Its Learner’s Permit, Drives Itself With New Autonomous Navigation System
No one likes a backseat driver. Not even robots on Mars.
The Curiosity Rover tried out a new feature yesterday when it successfully tested out an automatic navigation system that let it decide for itself how to safely drive on Mars. Curiosity doesn't seem old enough to drive, but I guess it's ruled by Martian law at this point.
