The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, better known as DARPA, held a robotics competition in Miami, Fla. over the weekend. At the two-day event, the world’s best robots were put to the test, competing in tasks designed to help humans in natural or man-made disasters, including opening doors or climbing up stairs, by relying on sensors or cameras to understand their environment. A total of 16 teams competed for the $2 million prize. RT’s Nicholas O’Donovan attended the event and brings us more.
