Robotic Cars
This 6:34 video is about the robitic car of the future. It shows such vehicles at the GM Tech Center testing two-wheeled, battery-powered cars called EN-Vs. About five feet long and weighing under 1,100 pounds, the tiny cars don't use up much energy or space. And they're smart: With GPS, theEN-Vs can plan a route to their destination and even talk to each other. A good video to motivate students about robotics.
