Jesper Smith - visiting from Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC)

IHMC has successfully entered their Atlas humanoid in the Darpa Robotics Challenge gaining a second place overall and coming in first among the Atlas teams. A custom walking algorithm was developed to fully utilize the capabilities of Atlas. We focused heavily on our user interface, allowing the operator to successfully navigate the robot trough unknown environments and in spite of highly degraded network connections. In this talk I'll briefly introduce the competition and the Atlas robot, discuss our strategy and talk about various aspects of our software.
