Exploring how robotics can reinvent how we respond to disasters.

We humans are brave but fragile creatures.

But when disaster strikes, we respond, often putting our own lives at risk to help others. Team ViGIR was formed to explore how robots can help save lives in emergency situations and humanitarian disasters without unnecessarily putting the lives of others on the line. The team brought together researchers from around the world to accomplish one primary goal: to advance the state of open-source humanoid robotics (specifically for humanitarian efforts) by competing in the most challenging robotics competitions, including the DARPA Robotics Challenge.
