I love DARPA challenges. The rate of progress on robotics systems these days is quite remarkable. I look forward to what will happen in the challenge this year. My guess is that the robots will struggle a lot, just like last year, because they have made the tests harder. However, in 5 years or less, these tests will seem simple for the machines they put forward then.
As if the original version of Boston Dynamics' ATLAS robot wasn't unsettling enough, ahead of the upcoming DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals in June about 75 percent of the robot has been redesigned and rebuilt to make it stronger, faster, quieter, and less encumbered by cables thanks to a battery-filled backpack that will now keep it powered during the upcoming trials.
