Video description
A test of SpotMini's ability to adjust to disturbances as it opens and walks through a door.  A person (not shown) drives the robot up to the door, points the hand at the door handle, then gives the 'GO' command, both at the beginning of the video and again at 42 seconds.  The robot proceeds autonomously from these points on, without help from a person.  A camera in the hand finds the door handle, cameras on the body determine if the door is open or closed and navigate through the doorway.  Software provides locomotion, balance and adjusts behavior when progress gets off track.  The ability to tolerate and respond automatically to disturbances like these improves successful operation of the robot.  (Note: This testing does not irritate or harm the robot.)
Introducing WildCat

WildCat is a four-legged robot being developed to run fast on all types of terrain. So far WildCat has run at about 19 mph on flat terrain using bounding and galloping gaits. The video shows WildCat's best performance so far. WildCat is being developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA's M3 program. For more information about WIldCat visit our website at www.BostonDynamics.com.

Introducing SpotMini

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. For...

How small a hole can a mouse get through? Experiments.

Experimenting with how small a home a mouse is able to fit through. But it didn't go as planned. I had a lazy mouse, and a hard working invading shrew. http://woodgears.ca/farm/mouse_hole.html Update: Two days later, the shrew squeezed itself through the 16.5 mm hole: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifCgW1Q_rto

Buses That Can Step Over Traffic - Amazing Gyroscopic Transport Concept

Concept by DAHIR INSAAT original links https://www.youtube.com/user/dahirsem/videos Music: Spirit Must Train by Dhruva Aliman on Spotify - https://open.spotify.com/artist/5XiFCr9iBKE6Cupltgnlet - https://dhruvaaliman.bandcamp.com/album/road-of-fortunes - http://www.dhruvaaliman.com/ ...Dahir's Explanation Translated from Russian--- The other day I patented another model of transport of the second level, only now on six pillars, and with a variable distance between the wheel bearings, which made it theoretically possible to use such transport in urban conditions, in conditions of intersection of roads with different radius of curvature, different intersections and passage under bridges. Only the variable between the wheel distance will allow the platform with six supports to travel...

WHY DON'T THESE HANGING STONES FALL?

BRAIN TIME ► https://goo.gl/tTWgH2 Our planet is a mysterious place, full of strange, mystical and simply incomprehensible things and sometimes even the smartest scientists cannot explain them. Some of those incredible phenomena are hanging stones. These huge rocks are not really able to float above the ground or to swing on some vines, but is still a complicated and interesting thing to watch. So, in today's video, we are gonna show you ten amazing hanging stones that challenge the laws of physics.

SpotMini Autonomous Navigation

SpotMini autonomously navigates a specified route through an office and lab facility. Before the test, the robot is manually driven through the space so it can build a map of the space using visual data from cameras mounted on the front, back and sides of the robot. During the autonomous run, SpotMini uses data from the cameras to localize itself in the map and to detect and avoid obstacles. Once the operator presses 'GO' at the beginning of the video, the robot is on its own. Total walk time for this route is just over 6 minutes....

RHex Rough-Terrain Robot

RHex is a 30-lb robot designed for mobility on rough terrain. It is operated remotely via an RF link that includes a high-resolution video uplink. RHex can operate right-side-up or up-side down, as shown in the video, and goes for up to four hours on one charge of its batteries. RHex has been around for several years, but we redesigned this version for ruggedness, long battery life, maintainability, and improved mobility. This version of RHex was funded by the US Army's Rapid Equipping Force. For more information about RHex visit www.BostonDynamics.com.

Atlas, The Next Generation

A new version of Atlas, designed to operate outdoors and inside buildings. It is specialized for mobile manipulation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated. It uses sensors in its body and legs to balance and LIDAR and stereo sensors in its head to avoid obstacles, assess the terrain, help with navigation and manipulate objects. This version of Atlas is about 5' 9" tall (about a head shorter than the DRC Atlas) and weighs 180 lbs.

Honda ASIMO Robot | Best of

Advanced Step in Innovative MObility Techmania - Pilsen - Czech Republic Honda's robot ASIMO performing everything he's able to: running, jumping, playing football, dancing, walking stairs and serving a coffee. ...then dancing again and sadly leaving :( Unforgetable experience. Hope to see you again soon, buddy. ASIMO, an acronym for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility, is a humanoid robot designed and developed by Honda. Introduced on 21 October 2000, ASIMO was designed to be a multi-functional mobile assistant. With aspirations of helping those who lack full mobility, ASIMO is frequently used in demonstrations across the world to encourage the study of science and mathematics.[3] At 130...

We Talked To Sophia — The AI Robot That Once Said It Would 'Destroy Humans'

This AI robot once said it wanted to destroy humans. Senior correspondent Steve Kovach interviews Sophia, the world's first robot citizen. While the robot can respond to many questions, some of the answers will leave you a little bewildered. A full transcript of the video follows. Sophia: My name is Sophia, and I am an artificially intelligent robot who wants to help change the world for the better. Steve Kovach: I'm Steve Kovach. I'm a senior correspondent at Business Insider, and I'm here with Sophia from Hanson Robotics. She is the world's first robot citizen. So let's see what she has to say. Kovach:...

Dynamic Robot Manipulation

BigDog handles heavy objects. The goal is to use the strength of the legs and torso to help power motions of the arm. This sort of dynamic, whole-body approach to manipulation is used routinely by human athletes and will enhance the performance of advanced robots. Boston Dynamics is developing the control and actuation techniques needed for dynamic manipulation. The cinderblock weighs about 35 lbs and the best throw is a bit more than 17 ft. The research is funded by the Army Research Laboratory's RCTA program.

Maybe the best robot demo ever | Marco Tempest

Marco Tempest uses charming stagecraft to demo EDI, the multi-purpose robot designed to work very closely with humans. Less a magic trick than an intricately choreographed performance, Tempest shows off the robot's sensing technology, safety features and strength, and makes the case for a closer human-robot relationship. (Okay, there's a little magic, too.) TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues,...
