IAI Demonstrates Multi-Arm Robot Control Software at DARPA Robotics Challenge Expo

HOMESTEAD, Fla., Dec. 20, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) will demonstrate its Multi-Arm Robot Control Software (MARCS) technology at the DARPA Robotics Challenge Expo taking place at Homestead-Miami Speedway on December 20-21, 2013. The robot prototype, known as MARCS, consists of a dual-arm torso manufactured by HDT Robotics, a custom-built chassis with tank-style treads, and is operated by IAI's innovative robot control software.

The MARCS robot prototype will be participating in multiple live demos throughout the Expo event. These live demos will be conducted in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab's "Robo Sally" dual-arm mobile platform. The two robots will be performing a simulated casualty evacuation task, during which they will utilize their dual-arm dexterous manipulation to operate a fire extinguisher, remove debris, stabilize the victim and safely transport the victim away. Both robots are operated remotely using revolutionary operator control techniques.

The demos are scheduled for 10:20am and 2:20pm on both Friday and Saturday in Dynamic Expo Area B. At other times, IAI and the MARCS technology will be sharing F4 with HDT Robotics or will be demonstrating in the DRC Expo Sandbox area.

The DARPA Robotics Challenge was designed to catalyze the robotics community to develop advanced robots that can assist humans in mitigating and recovering from future natural and man-made disasters. The DRC Trials marks the first chance that the participants will have to compete in real-world scenarios. A final event is scheduled for December 2014.

The DRC Trials are free and open to the public and media. In addition to the competition, the on-site DRC Exposition will showcase technology related to disaster response, robotics and autonomy.
