DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals

NASA's quadrupedal RoboSimian
The DRC is a competition of robot systems and software teams vying to develop robots capable of assisting humans in responding to natural and man-made disasters. It was designed to be extremely difficult. Participating teams, represent some of the most advanced robotics research and development organizations in the world, 

To qualify for the DRC Finals, the teams had to submit videos showing successful completion of five sample tasks: engage an emergency shut-off  switch, get up from a prone position, loco-mote ten meters without falling, pass over a barrier, and rotate a circular valve 360 degrees.

25 teams will compete during the two-day event, to be held June 5-6, 2015, at Fairplex in Pomona, California.
