2015 2015 IEEE-RAS 15th International Conference on Humanoid Robots (Humanoids)  
We describe Team WPI-CMU's approach to the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC), focusing on our strategy to avoid failures that required physical human intervention.  ...  We implemented safety features in our controller to detect potential catastrophic failures, stop the current behavior, and allow remote intervention by a human supervisor.  ...  Early detection of robot or operator errors can prevent falls.  ...

Rosado for their advices and simulations. We also thank the mechanics, PHIL, and vacuum team at LAL for the construction of the fluorescence bench.  ...  This is partially due to design bugs which make some unused components always on. Since these bugs were corrected in the next version of the ASIC, a reduction of the power consumption was expected.  ...  The bottom part is therefore equipped with crash rings, which absorb strong deceleration (up to 15 g) when landing on ground.  ...
