Boston Dynamics :latest model of Spot Mini shows off all his skill

Mi-raptor, half giraffe, the latest robot signed Boston Dynamics handles of dishes, rises alone and slips under all the tables!

Boston Dynamics : After the cat, the jaguar and humanoid robotics lab Google, about to be bought by Toyota from many sources, is back and presents a new model of agile robot, inspired by a new animal as terrifying and fascinating. Mi-mi-giraffe velociraptor, the new autonomous system surprises with its agility and especially its address.

This new model is called SpotMini, so this is a smaller version of Spot the Dog Boston Dynamics. It weighs 30 kg (with his head), it is waterproof, all-electric and has an autonomy of 90 minutes. According to Boston Dynamics "MINISPOT is the quietest robot" they've ever designed. It embeds a series of sensors that "cameras depths, a gyro (IMU) and the proprioceptive sensors on each of its members." Advanced technologies that allow it to be a form of self-awareness, being able to be in the environment. If it can operate autonomously, most of his actions were overseen by a human operator.

With each new publication of video, internet is unleashed. Less noticed that his colleague Atlas has nearly 17 million views on Youtube, which remains that at the revelation of WildCat (22 million views), SpotMini has so far only been relayed by specialized media, but with almost a million views in just one night, one can expect a massive revival in the coming days.

IEEE Spectrum journalists have listed a series of details that have challenged them: SpotMini works without water and therefore without gasoline, the skill demonstrated by the robot is such that they suspect most of the actions have been carried out by a operator and not independently. There appear two versions of the same robot, one is devoid of head-arms (which weighs 4.5 kg) and to manipulate objects. Side technology, it seems embark S7 MultiSense and Volodyne VLP16.

In this new video, SpotMini demonstrated all his talents: Fill dishwasher, ability to get up after a fall ... Let's discover the incredible skill of this new robot!
