RoboSimian Competes

RoboSimian, a limbed robot developed by engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, competed in the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) Trials in Florida in December 2013. The robot weighs 238 pounds (108 kilograms), including its battery, and stands at 5.4 feet (164 cm) in its bipedal pose. The DRC Finals will take place in Pomona, California, from June 5-6, 2015.

The RoboSimian team is led by JPL. Stanford University, Palo Alto, Calif., collaborated on the development of the robot's unique hands.

The California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, manages JPL for NASA. For more information about robotics at JPL, including involvement with the DARPA Robotics Challenge, see http://www-robotics.jpl.nasa.gov/index.cfm.
