Watch DARPA’s SubT Cave Circuit Virtual Competition

IEEE Spectrum

While we’re super bummed that COVID forced the cancellation of the Systems Track event of the DARPA Subterranean Challenge Cave Circuit, the good news is that the Virtual Track (being virtual) is 100 percent coronavirus-free, and the final event is taking place tomorrow, November 17, right on schedule. And honestly, it’s about time the Virtual Track gets the attention that it deserves—we’re as guilty as anyone of focusing more heavily on the Systems Track, being full of real robots that alternate between amazingly talented and amazingly klutzy, but the Virtual Track is just as compelling, in a very different way.

DARPA has scheduled the Cave Circuit Virtual Track live event for Tuesday starting at 2 p.m. ET, and we’ve got all the details.
