DARPA Autonomous Robotic Manipulation (ARM) – Phase 1

DARPA’s Autonomous Robotic Manipulation (ARM) program is developing software to perform human-level tasks quickly and with minimal direction.

This video shows the ARM robot performing 18 grasping and manipulation tasks using vision, force, and tactile sensing with full autonomy — no active human control. The DARPA-supplied robot was built using commercial components that include an arm, hand, neck, and head sensors.

During rigorous testing in November 2011, the best team achieved 93% success in grasping modeled and unmodeled objects. The ARM program has entered its second phase, where focus turns to complex bimanual manipulation scenarios

  1. You are telling? …
    You are telling? only half of the story…..unfortunatley it is the ignorant half.

  2. You are RIGHT!!! …
    You are RIGHT!!! Their impossible evolution is against the Laws of Physics which says things go from ORDER to DISorder. Here you have intelligent humans designing complex robots that mimic humans. Do you realize that the atheists are PROVING that it takes an Intelligent Designer to make Complex Designs??? (Contrary to their unscientific theory of evolution!!!!) ?

  3. I love how it looks …
    I love how it looks so confused at everything xD?

  4. Maybe they could …
    Maybe they could buy? an ASIMO as a helper for this robot?

  5. wait a few years …
    wait a few years and you’ll change your mind on that.. we’ll have robots that will? be like gods in humans’ eyes.

  6. Your God didn’t …
    Your God didn’t tell you that all the wolf spiders who didn’t make the grade are all dead. A Wolf Spider that can’t hunt, would not have lived long enough to be seen by? you. It’s not that Nature only make amazing things; it’s that all the failures, trillions of them, are now literal dust that’s swept under the carpet.

  7. Considering …
    Considering scientists like this have started building robots from scratch its amazing? that they can do things like this already and how fast the technology is progressing. If you think about how many processes go into something as simple as turning a door handle, including recognising the door handle and having the hand-eye co-ordination to do it, it’s truly amazing that man-made machines have the capability to do these things autonomously.

  8. i was watching a …
    i was watching a wolf spider today at work and i was putting a piece of paper in its face trying? to make it mad and i realized something….even the smallest life like that is a trillion times more complex and amazing than anything man can make. watching this bumbling robot here proves that lol. God is amazing

  9. BORING. It’s ust? a …
    BORING. It’s ust? a c&c machine with a hand attached to it

  10. They should use it …
    They should use it to get toys from claw machine.?

  11. Sure, lets give a …
    Sure, lets give a robot a sharp screwdriver. That’s safe, what could? possibly go wrong…

  12. THE FUTURE IS NOW!! …
    THE FUTURE IS NOW!!!
    Google
    – Vertical Farming
    – 3D Printing (Organs too)
    – Quantum Levitation
    – Thorium Reactors
    – Arcology
    All that stands between Humanity and a “Post-Scarcity Clean Futuristic” World is? not the KNOW HOW but the? Will to Change.

  13. 1:54 Awesome. …
    1:54 Awesome. DARPA’s developed a robot that can open doors as good? as me when I get home from the bar at 3 a.m.
