DARPA Robotics Challenge Trials live broadcast

December 20, 2013

The time has come for the robots competing on the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) to make their first public appearance. The trials for the final 2014 event will take place on December 20-21, 2013 and you can watch them live (or up close if you are lucky!). As stated on DARPA’s website:
“The Trials will provide a baseline on the current state of robotics and determine which teams will continue on to the DRC Finals in 2014 with continued DARPA funding. Competing in the 2014 Finals will lead to one team winning a $2 million prize.“
