AIST Humanoid Robotics Challenge

Chapter
Part of the Springer Tracts in Advanced Robotics book series (STAR, volume 114)

Abstract

This paper presents the challenges assigned to humanoid robots by National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). Since the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan initiated a research and development (R&D) project on humanoid robotics, AIST has developed platforms for humanoid robotics research and conducted R&D on humanoid robots applications. Particular attention has been developed to the requirements of industries using the platforms. Following TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station accident in 2011, DARPA started the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) to promote innovation in robotic technology for disaster-response operations. In the DRC, participating robots are assigned a series of challenging tasks that indicate their suitability for disaster response. This paper presents AIST Humanoid Challenge related the DRC-selected tasks.
