During DARPA's Urban Challenge National Qualifying Event (October 26-31), autonomous cars had to complete courses at the Southern California Logistics Airport , in Victorville , CA . In Test Area A, the vehicles needed to make a left-hand turn across moving traffic, which consisted of 11 cars driven by members of the Urban Challenge team. In Test Area B, the vehicles were tested for speed as they drove along narrow roads lined with parked cars and found a place to park in a crowded lot. In Test Area C, the vehicles needed to correctly assess the right-of-way at a four-way stop and find an alternate route when encountering a surprise roadblock.
