DARPA Robotics Challenge: Here Are the Official Details

Illustration of a disaster response scenario part of the DARPA Robotics Challenge: The robot on the right uses a power tool to break through a wall, and the one on the left turns a valve to close a leaking pipe. Image: DARPA DARPA to the robotics community: the challenge is on. The DARPA Robotics Challenge is offering tens of million of dollars in funding to teams from anywhere in the world to build robots capable of performing complex mobility and manipulation tasks such as walking over rubble and operating power tools. It s all about adaptability what s the most adaptable system that can be used during that first day or two of the disaster when you have a chance to reduce the scope of the disaster by taking action, Dr. Gill Pratt, the DARPA program manager who s organizing the challenge, told IEEE Spectrum.
