Rise of the Quadrupeds: Is Robotic Off-Roading In Our Future

If you are at all interested in future tech, you have probably heard of DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Founded after the surprise launch of Sputnik in 1958, DARPA commissions research for the DOD. Among their many accomplishments was inventing the internet (sorry, Al Gore), not to mention GPS and stealth aircraft. A host of smaller technologies, from Google Maps to Siri, began as or were based on DARPA research.

Given this pedigree, DARPA deserves attention when they set their sights on something new, and the latest technology the white-coats are developing is right up our dirt-road: robotic quadrupeds. What’s most interesting about these robots for us, dear reader, is that they may one day be the successor to ATVs and rock crawlers.
