Hybrid robots, we understand that.
Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security by asking you to provide two forms of identification before you can access your personal information. The first is your usual user ID and password. The second is typically a unique code that is sent to your phone or some other physical device, that you then enter during the second stage of the login process.
The DRC is a competition of robot systems and software teams vying to develop robots capable of assisting humans in responding to natural and man-made disasters. It was designed to be extremely difficult. Participating teams, represent some of the most advanced robotics research and development organizations in the world,
To qualify for the DRC Finals, the teams had to submit videos showing successful completion of five sample tasks: engage an emergency shut-off switch, get up from a prone position, loco-mote ten meters without falling, pass over a barrier, and rotate a circular valve 360 degrees.
