Following the route, TerraMax covered 1.2 miles within the required corridors and got stuck before a bush. The race log indicated that the communication net-work had malfunctioned and that the envi-ronment-sensing-and-fusion process didn t update the fusion map. So, the map indicated that there was always a bush before the truck, which prevented TerraMax from moving on. However, none of the other vehicles finished the course, either.
