The Robotics Institute
Into the abyss with perception, mobility, dexterity, endurance and strength beyond man. And something else. An autonomy and decision-making ability that breaks with everything that went before.
The next evolution in the history of man is here. CHIMP.
Robotic helpmate. Disaster hero. Stunt double. Intelligent agent. And a revolutionary humanoid companion with opposable thumbs.
CHIMP changes everything. Two thumbs up.
Some tasks are relatively easy for humans, but extremely difficult for robots. Performing them requires significant advances in perception, supervised autonomy, decision-making, mobility, dexterity, strength and endurance.
Beyond disaster response, the application of CHIMP’s potential is limited only by the human imagination.
The code and creativity developed for CHIMP is the natural evolution of robotic potential.
There is literally nothing like CHIMP.
Developed from the ground up by the world’s top roboticists, CHIMP is a generation of one and a new template for highly intelligent mobile robots.
Become part of the team. For the evolution to continue, investors and sponsors are vital.
CHIMP’s team is 50 members strong, drawing from NREC technical staff, as well as faculty, staff and students from The Robotics Institute. A core group of about 10 people work full-time on the project.
But they need your help. Invest in world-changing technology, and be a part of the next evolution of humankind.
CHIMP needs you.
