Team Description* Insight Racing is an organization created to develop autonomous vehicle technologies to support military, commercial, and industrial applications.  Autonomous vehicles support computerized control of a vehicle including navigation, obstacle avoidance, and specialized task completion.

Our team members have been working together for more than 5 years in international robotics competitions.  We have members from industry as well as North Carolina State University students.  Our members have diverse backgrounds including Aerospace Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Physics.

Last year we were one of 19 teams that were considered completely acceptable to join DARPA at the QID.  We continue to build on last year's design in anticipation of the 2005 Grand Challenge.
