The CENTAURO project aims to develop a human-robot symbiotic system, in which a human operator is tele-present within a Centaur-like robot. It will be capable of robust locomotion and dexterous manipulation in rough terrain and difficult conditions which characterizes disasters.

The CENTAURO system will be capable of using unmodified human tools for solving complex bimanual manipulation tasks, such as connecting a hose or opening a valve. A human operator will control the robot intuitively using a full-body telepresence suit that provides visual, auditory, and upper-body haptic feedback.

Robot preceptions and suggested actions will be displayed to the operator using augmented reality techniques.
