ROBOTIS, a
proud member of Team THOR [
Tactical
Hazardous Operations Robot]
, is participating for the DARPA
ROBOTICS CHALLENGE (DRC)
Track A in collaboration with Virgina Tech, UPenn,
and Harris Corp.



 



 


“The Robotics Challenge is a
direct answer to the Fukushima Nuclear Plant disaster that befell Japan
following a massive earthquake in March 2011. Japan, despite being known as a
leader in the field of humanoid robotics, had no readily available robots that
could enter the plant site ? besieged by water from a tsunami after-effect of
the earthquake, lacking power, and under meltdown conditions ? to take stock of
damage and begin work to stave off disaster and/or repair damage to the nuclear
facility.”

The four
team members each will have its own task to perform. Virginia Tech will develop
the humanoid robot platform including new actuators that mimic biological
muscles. University
of Pennsylvania will work
on 3-D perception and navigation, in addition to the robot’s ability to “plan.”
Harris will develop seamless manipulation systems, while ROBOTIS will create an
open-platform system and arms with high-end, dexterous hands.”

“The DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) will attempt to
address this capability gap by promoting innovation in robotic technology for
disaster-response operations.”
