DARPA Robot Navigates Complex Obstacles

This short video shows the DARPA Pet-Proto robot navigating some challenging obstacles.


In this video you can see the Pet-Proto, a predecessor to the Atlas robot, navigating some very complex obstacles. According to DARPA, in order to maneuver over and around the obstacles, the robot exercises capabilities including autonomous decision-making, dismounted mobility and dexterity. Pretty cool stuff. 

I'll spare everyone the predicable Terminator quotes and snarky comments.
