The Team DRC-Hubo@UNLV robot is a semi-autonomous humanoid robot – a robot with a body shape that resembles a human body – complete with numerous electro-mechanical and computer systems that support movement and interaction with humans and the environment. It was developed in response to the DARPA Robotics challenge to aid disaster relief with robotics. 

The robot was built in collaboration with Kookmin University from South Korea. The team took first place and the $2 million (£1.3 million) prize money at the DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals.
