Meet RoboSimian, NASA JPLs Ape-Like Robot!
NASA JPLs RoboSimian robot stood out at the DARPA Robotics Challenge as one of the few non-humanoid designs. The use of four versatile limbs allows it to adapt to the test scenario in ways that would be difficult for a bipedal robot. We chat with Katie Byl of the UC Santa Barbara Robotics Lab , whose team programmed RoboSimian , to learn about the advantages of a quadruped design and how RoboSimian may be utilized in complex environments like being underground or even in space !
