RoboSimian disaster relief robot. Computer illustration showing the RoboSimian disaster relief robot grasping the rung of a ladder. RoboSimian is an ape-like robot designed and built at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California, USA, to compete in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Robotics Challenge. The challenge seeks to spur the development of robots for relief work in the wake of natural and man-made disasters. Competitor robots must complete a series of tasks, including driving a vehicle, using tools and climbing a ladder.
