DARPA, a government agency known for innovative advances in technology, sponsored the Robotics Challenge to promote critical improvements in robotics technology for disaster relief operations—especially where severe risks make human action too risky, or time constraints are critical.

For instance, a human at a remote monitoring post, surveying the scene through the robot’s “eyes,” might be called on to make rapid judgments a robot is poor at, such as quickly determining the best path through a debris field.

As a result, this project will address several unsolved problems in collaborative design of human-machine interfaces, humanoid balance and walking algorithms, humanoid motion planning in complex 3D environments, and combined humanoid mobility and human-machine team manipulation.
