Boston Dynamics showed SpotMini, the most advanced robot dog ever made, for the first time in a video posted in November 2017.
The company, best known for Atlas, has its 5 foot 9 (1.7 meter) humanoid robot, has a new & # 39; lightweight & # 39; version of his robot Spot Mini revealed.
The robot dog was shown trotting around a garden, with the promise that more information will come from the notoriously secret company & # 39; coming soon & # 39 ;.
& # 39; SpotMini is a small four-legged robot that fits comfortably in an office or home & # 39 ;, the company says on its website.
It weighs 25 kg (55 lb) or 30 kg (66 lb) when you place the robot arm.
SpotMini is fully electric and can charge for about 90 minutes in a row, depending on what it does, the company proudly says: & # 39; SpotMini is the quietest robot we've built & # 39;
SpotMini was first unveiled in 2016, and an earlier version of the mini version of a spot with a strange extendable neck has been shown to help with the house.
In the previous video of the company, the robot is shown to walk outside the company's headquarters and to what appears to be a home.
There it helps with loading a dishwasher and carries a can to the trash can.
It also comes across a fallen banana peel and falls dramatically – but uses the extendable neck to push itself up.
& # 39; SpotMini is one of the quietest robots we have ever built, the company says because of the electric motors.
& # 39; It has a variety of sensors including depth camera & # 39; s, a solid state gyro (IMU) and proprioception sensors in the limbs.
& # 39; These sensors help with navigation and mobile manipulation.
& # 39; SpotMini performs some tasks autonomously, but often uses a person for high-level guidance. & # 39;
