Axion Racing was the first team to autonomously drive up to the top of Colorado's Pike Peak and now leads the way by finding cutting edge uses for the beleaguered Sony PS3. This two time DARPA Grand Challenge qualifier is the first racing team to implement Yellow Dog Linux and a Sony PlayStation game console to manage one of seven autonomous vehicle cameras.
"We are pleased to announce the release of Yellow Dog Linux(TM) v5.0.2, a single Install DVD with support for the Apple G4 and G5 computers, Sony PS3, and IBM 'System p' servers, including the JS20/21, OpenPower, and current POWER5 systems."

As many people know Yellow Dog Linux, from Terra Soft, now runs on the Cell engine in Sony's PS3. That's very cool, but the thing many people may not realize is that Terra Soft isn't so much in the yellow dog business as it is in the supercomputing and life sciences software businesses.
Six months of design, engineering, integration, and testing has culminated in the finest release from Terra Soft to date. Designed, not just assembled, Yellow Dog Linux v5.0 featuring E17 is immediately available for your Sony PlayStation 3.
