Metal Rebel | Team DRC-Hubo at UNLV

Team DRC-Hubo participated at the Miami Trails as a Track A team, led by Drexel University. The team lead and robot re-located to the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) in August 2014. The robot was recently upgraded and a new team, primarily made up of UNLV researchers, has been formed as a Track D effort.

DRC-Hubo is a full-sized humanoid. Since it's debut in the Miami Trials, the robot has been upgraded to have longer and stronger limbs. The 3-fingered hand was also improved for stronger grasps.
