Strech’s first commercial application is with DHL Supply Chain, a company that Boston Dynamics has been collaborating with since 2018.
With a new routine where Atlas assists at a simulated job site, Boston Dynamics engineers have pushed the humanoid one step closer to performing real-world manipulation tasks at human speed.
Ghost Robotics said “Boston Dynamics is drawing on their considerably larger resources to litigate instead of innovate.”
Boston Dynamics claims Ghost Robotics infringed on seven patents related to Boston Dynamics’ Spot quadruped robot.
Agility Robotics, ANYbotics, Boston Dynamics, Clearpath Robotics, Open Robotics and Unitree pledged not to support the weaponization of their products and are calling for others in the industry to do the same.
The company is enhancing its security services by integrating the Boston Dynamics Spot robot with a payload of cameras and additional sensors.
NFI will use Stretch in its network of import deconsolidation centers, cross-dock and transload facilities, as well as floor-loaded inbound and outbound distribution centers.
Sally Miller, DHL Supply Chain’s chief information officer for North America, spoke to The Robot Report about the types of robots the company uses.
New capabilities for Spot include thermal imaging collection, the Scout API, arm inspections, automatic stair recognition and more.
Marc Raibert, founder of Boston Dynamics, will lead the institute’s work on cognitive AI, athletic AI, organic hardware design and ethics and policy.
Boston Dynamics’ has added additional payloads and hardware upgrades to its quadruped Spot to help it operate in more areas.
Attendees of the Robotics Summit & Expo will have the chance to test out Boston Dynamics’ quadruped robot Spot.
Stretch is a mobile robot that unloads floor-loaded trailers and containers. It can handle up to 50 lbs at a time.
Boston Dynamics will deliver a fleet of Stretch robots to multiple DHL warehouses throughout North America over the next three years.
The robot provides real-time sharing of photos of on-site situations and an activity log with the control center.
Spot Release 3.0 enhances its data collection capabilities to improve ease of use and efficiency for facility inspection.
A senior robotics engineer at Boston Dynamics explains how perception and adaptability enable Atlas to perform varied, high-energy behaviors like parkour.
By training Atlas to maneuver through complex parkour courses, Boston Dynamics developed new movements inspired by human behaviors and pushed the humanoid to new limits.
Engineers use a few different techniques that employed both Spot’s Choreographer software and its API to make Spot dance.
Hyundai paid about $880 million to acquire the controlling stake from Softbank in December 2020, valuing Boston Dynamics at $1.1 billion.
I feel your pain, Anderson Cooper. I feel your pain. I too have been trying to get into Boston Dynamics’ headquarters for years, but to no avail. Certainly Boston Dynamics must have lost my phone number, which is why it reached out to you and 60 Minutes. If you missed it, Cooper and 60 Minutes…
Using robots to unload freight on receiving docks isn’t a novel idea. A quick YouTube search will return a slew of results. But many of these previous approaches have been stifled by high costs and the inability to handle a growing variety of packages. Of course, robotics companies are still working on the problem, which…
