DARPA Robotics Challenge to award 3 teams a total of $3.5 mil in June

The final event will be in Pomona, CA 5-6 June. That’s right up the road from me, and where my daughter goes to college….hmmmm…I may have to make a road trip in June.

The new prize structure was created in recognition of both the significant progress already demonstrated by teams toward development of human-supervised robot technology for disaster response and the increased number of teams planning to compete in the Finals, including those funded by the European Union and the governments of Japan and South Korea.

DARPA developed the Atlas robot, and the teams are challenged to take the basic robot, upgrade it and operate it through a series of tests.

I do love the challenge approach.
