Buckle Up for a Pet Robot!

Technology Inceptions

"A nimble robot that handles objects, climbs stairs, and will operate in offices, homes, and outdoors,” is how Boston Dynamics describes their SpotMini robot that hits the market in 2019. Company founder Marc Raibert also said SpotMini was “motivated by thinking about what could go in an office — in a space more accessible for business applications — and then, the home eventually.” 

SpotMini inherits all the mobility of its bigger brother, Spot, while packing the ability to pick up and handle objects using its 5 degree-of-freedom arm and perception sensors. The sensor suite includes stereo cameras, depth cameras, an IMU, and position/  force sensors in the limbs.
