Robots to the Rescue! JPL’s RoboSimian and Surrogate Robots are here to Help
JPL has been engaged in several programs over the last couple of years that have developed new robots and software that can help out in terrestrial disaster scenarios or hazardous environments. In particular, the RoboSimian and Surrogate sibling robots have been designed to move through human environments after humans have had to evacuate and execute key manipulation tasks that will ameliorate the situation. RoboSimian will be put to the test against an international field of robotic competitors at the DARPA Robotics Challenge this June 5-6 at the Pomona Fairplex in California.
