Robots are getting closer!!!

One of the biggest challenges for Robotic Engineers is, how to make robots which could do things that are very easy for humans. That is exactly why DARPA added below scenarios in their challenges,
1. Drive a utility vehicle at the site.
2. Travel dismounted across rubble.
3. Remove debris blocking an entryway.
4. Open a door and enter a building.
5. Climb an industrial ladder and traverse an industrial walkway.
6. Use a tool to break through a concrete panel.
7. Locate and close a valve near a leaking pipe.
8. Connect a fire hose to a standpipe and turn on a valve.

Recently Boston Dynamics achieved a remarkable feat in this area, its four-legged robot opened a closed door and walked out. See that video and some other interesting videos from Boston Dynamics below.
