The Field Robotics Center at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robot Institute has a nice robot slide show on their web site. No R2D2 or Johnny 5 here, just real working robots. Some are research prototypes, but (to me) the true stars are the actual working robots like the Remote Reconnaissance Vehicle (shown above) which was the first vehicle to enter the reactor containment building at Three Mile Island after a meltdown in March 1979.
