The Human Avatar 2045 Project

"The Avatar program will develop interfaces and algorithms to enable a soldier to effectively partner with a semi-autonomous bi-pedal machine and allow it to act as the soldier's surrogate," Wired quoted DARPA as saying.
The robots' duties will include "room clearing, sentry control [and] combat casualty recovery."
