“Our whole crew got together to celebrate the start of what we hope will be a happier year.” Wrote at Boston Dynamics on Instagram. Atlas, the world’s most dynamic humanoid robot with human-level agility, opens the dances. Atlas is also a research platform designed to push the limits of whole-body mobility.
Then Spot and Handle™ join in. Four-legged dog-bot Spot is able to navigate terrains with unprecedented mobility, allowing to automate routine inspection tasks and data capture safely, accurately, and frequently. Handle™ is a mobile robot designed to move boxes in warehouses thanks to a deep-learning vision software.
Earlier this year Spot has protected frontline healthcare workers by minimizing their exposure to the COVID-19; the robot has been on trial at the Brigham and Women’s hospital in Massachusetts where it has been used as a mobile telemedicine platform.
The dog-bot has also been deployed in parks and public spaces to broadcast a recorded message where it reminded people about the safety measures.
