The spindly appearance of JPL's RoboSimian was somewhat unique among competitors in the DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals in Pomona, California, as most were bipedal walkers. This image was taken on June 5, 2015.
The RoboSimian team at JPL is collaborating with partners at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. Caltech manages JPL for NASA. For more information about DARPA Robotics Challenge, visit http://theroboticschallenge.org.
