How DARPA's Robotics Challenge Works (Infographic)

How DARPA's Robotics Challenge Works (Infographic) | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Inspired by the disaster response to the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, the DARPA challenge tests some of the mobility, manipulation and perception skills a robot would need in an emergency situation.

First, robots must drive and exit a utility vehicle. Then they walk across rough terrain and remove debris from a doorway. The robots open a series of doors, climb an industrial ladder and cut through a wall. Then they carry and connect a firehose. Lastly, the robot must locate and close leaking valves.

These test check a robot’s perception, mobility, manual dexterity, decision-making capacity and strength.

With advances in the ability of robots to detected their surroundings and their ability to walk over unstable grounds leads the increase in robots for disaster relief. these robots can go in place of humans where there is to much risk involved.
