The
use of ground robots in military explosive-ordinance-disposal missions

the current limitations on mobility and manipulation capabilities of
robots can be overcome, robots could much more effectively assist
warfighters across a greater range of missions. DARPA’s Maximum Mobility
and Manipulation (M3) program seeks to create and demonstrate
significant scientific and engineering advances in robot mobility and
manipulation capa
