Boston Dynamics introduces SpotMini, the autonomous robotic dog

Just like the Jetson’s dog Astro, Boston Dynamics has introduced the new SpotMini, a fully functional autonomous robotic dog

(INTELLIHUB) — Meet the new SpotMini, a fully functional autonomous robotic dog.

“SpotMini is a new smaller version of the Spot robot, weighing 55 lbs dripping wet (65 lbs if you include its arm.) SpotMini is all-electric (no hydraulics) and runs for about 90 minutes on a charge, depending on what it is doing. SpotMini is one of the quietest robots we have ever built. It has a variety of sensors, including depth cameras, a solid state gyro (IMU) and proprioception sensors in the limbs. These sensors help with navigation and mobile manipulation. SpotMini performs some tasks autonomously, but often uses a human for high-level guidance,” reads the video’s description.
