DARPA's latest humanoid robot

25th October 2012

In this video, the Pet-Proto – an early prototype of DARPA's Atlas robot – is confronted with obstacles similar to those robots might face in the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC). To manoeuvre over and around the obstacles, the robot exercises capabilities including autonomous decision-making, dismounted mobility and dexterity. The DARPA Robotics Challenge will test these and other capabilities in a series of tasks that simulate conditions in dangerous, degraded, human-engineered environments. Teams participating in Tracks B and C of the DRC will compete for access to a modified version of the Atlas robot for use in the 2013 and 2014 live disaster-response challenge events.
