Singapore to sponsor first-ever Warfare Robot Challenge

Defense Industry Daily on the Singapore’s Warfare Robot Challenge,  which is offering one million Singapore dollars ($652,000)  to whoever develops a robot that completes a stipulated set of tasks related to urban warfare.

“DSTA wants to create a robot that “must, on its own, be able to navigate both indoors and outdoors in an urban landscape and accomplish a set of assigned tasks within a stipulated time”…. This robot must be able to negotiate a staircase and use the elevator to dash from one floor to another without the aid of satellite navigation, which may not be available indoors.”
