Congratulations Tommy!

Duke At JavaOne this week, Perrone Robotics' Paul Perrone won a Duke Award in the Emerging Technologies category.

The award described Tommy like this:

Tommy Tommy, a project of Perrone Robotics, Inc., is a completely autonomous, Java-technology powered 12-foot-long dune buggy. It was designed for the 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge race in an attempt to be the first robotic vehicle to navigate by itself 150 miles through the Mojave desert in 10 hours or less.  Tommy is driven by Perrone Robotics' patent-pending Mobile Autonomous X-bot (MAX) technology. MAX is a general purpose robotics and automation platform, which dramatically decreases the time and cost involved with developing robotics applications of all shapes and sizes.

Blaze Advisor, Fair Isaac's business rules management system, was used by Perrone Robotics to do offline route planning initially and is going to be tightly integrated into the Max platform going forward. Congratulations to Paul and the rest of the team on the Duke award!
