"Shelley" is the newest VW ERL test vehicle and will be conquering Pike's Peak in 2011. Yes, that's a Java logo and she is indeed "Java Powered"! Shelley will be using Java Realtime and Solaris for her driving control, GPS integration, telemetry logging and portions of her safety system.
My part, thus far, has been to provide a Solaris CAN bus driver. Which I, unfortunately, had to write in C.
