Plenty of buzz has been going around on the internet about the RoboSimian, a multi-limbed ape-like device with the potential to assist in crisis situations. According to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory website “RoboSimian will use its four general purpose limbs and hands, capable of both mobility and manipulation, to achieve passively stable stances; create multi-point anchored connections to supports such as ladders, railings, and stair treads; and brace itself during forceful manipulation operations.”
According to Wired JPL released a new video to show off RoboSimian’s achievements during DARPA’s Robotics Challenge Trials, which took place in Miami in December.
What do you think of these advancements?
