Meet the future first responders – DARPA | New World Robots – 2015

Scroll this

Meet the future first responders. These 25 robots will compete for $3.5 million in a disaster-response simulation sponsored by the Defense Department. The winner could become our next soldier. DARPA, the research arm of the Defense Department, was inspired to start the competition after the 2011 tsunami in Japan, when a robot could have gone into the Fukushima Daiichi power plant and prevented a hydrogen buildup that led to an explosion.
