A helicopter commissioned by Audi to film its autonomous Audi TT climbing Pikes Peak crashed early this morning. Four people on board were hurt, the pilot seriously.
It's a surreal story--a manned vehicle crashes while the one climbing a mountain driven only by computers and sensors carries on.
For more on the autonomous Audi, a project undertaken with the help of Stanford University check out our past coverage here.
