Limbed robot RoboSimian was developed at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The robot is seen with Brett Kennedy, supervisor of the JPL Robotic Vehicles and Manipulators Group, and Chuck Bergh, a senior engineer in JPL's Robotic Hardware Systems Group.
The RoboSimian team is led by JPL. Stanford University, Palo Alto, Calif., collaborated on the development of the robot's unique hands.
The California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, manages JPL for NASA. For more information about robotics at JPL, including involvement with the DARPA Robotics Challenge, see http://www-robotics.jpl.nasa.gov/index.cfm.
