Humanoid Robot Improvised Explosive Device Response

UT’s Human Centered Robotics Group student Steven Jens Jorgensen collaborates with NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) and affiliates in testing a unique application for NASA’s Valkyrie humanoid robot to semi-autonomously dispose of explosives in a simulated urban scenario. Congratulations to NASA Johnson Space Center’s ER4 division for leading the effort and to personnel from TRACLabs, The Institute for Human Machine and Cognition (IHMC), Jacobs Technology, METECS, CACI, and The University of Texas at Austin for this team accomplishment.
