You may recall Carnegie Mellon won the DARPA Urban challenge with a vehicle named BOSS. They will use some of this software and other technology such as laser range finders, GPS and video cameras in the new trucks.
The truck will sport a 3,550-horsepower, 24-valve engine and travel at at up to 42 miles per hour.
The main idea behind this project is to remove humans from dangerous jobs such as mining.
