DARPA Robot ARM Simulator

At the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American  visitors can play interactive games with the DARPA Autonomous Robotic Manipulation (ARM) robot, see what the robot "sees" on video screens behind the robot and learn how robots process information. The exhibit teaches visitors about how robotics can impact society and encourages young people to pursue careers in science and engineering. DARPA is also offering the public the opportunity to develop and test code to perform tasks in the robot simulator, then upload that code to an actual robot and watch it execute the task in real-time via the web.

The DARPA ARM robot is a cutting edge robot designed as a tool for researchers at leading U.S. universities and research labs to find ways to enhance the types of tasks robots can perform while minimizing the amount of human input necessary.
