Meet NASA's Humanoid Robot R5: Valkyrie


Robots like NASA's R5: Valkyrie could be used in future NASA missions either as precursor robots performing mission tasks before humans arrive or as human-assistive robots actively collaborating with the human crew. R5 initially was designed to complete disaster-relief maneuvers, however, its main goal is to prove itself worthy of even trickier terrain - deep space exploration. Valkyrie will enable breakthroughs in humanoid control, motion planning, and perception.
