A new robotics challenge is going to start in a few weeks: on July 20, 
2 electric vehicles will depart from Parma, Italy, and travel to 
Shanghai, China, where they will arrive after a 3 months trip and with 
no driver; the autonomous pilot (sensing, decision, actuation) is 
powered by solar energy. This unique event in the history of robotics 
can be followed live -via satellite- from the official website at:
