Surely, you are no stranger to Boston Dynamics' SpotMini dog: Be clever, move smoothly like a real dog, open doors, do not fall …
Impressive, but while Boston Dynamics is looking for ways to make SpotMini more wise and adaptable – researchers from the Italian Institute of Technology (Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia – ITT) have produced a powerful version of the robot dog. their own.
Called HyQReal, the robot model from Italy weighs 130kg, while SpotMini is only about 30kg.
On April 16, Boston Dynamics showed off SpotMini's power by giving 10 truck-towing units.
In the video "Mush, Spot, Mush!" posted on YouTube on April 16, Boston Dynamics demonstrated the power of SpotMini robot dog by having 10 tow trucks.
OK, it sounds impressive, but only one HyQReal can "solo" pull the Piaggio P180 Avanti with a weight of 3300kg and a wingspan of 14.4m.
The US robot dog opened the door, Italy has "pulled" 3-ton aircraft
"Aircraft towing is a challenge that allows us to show its power, energy self-coordination and optimal design. [HyQReal], " IIT's Dynamic Legged Systems project leader said.
"We want to achieve something unprecedented, and last week we succeeded."
But, why do we have such fill-in robots? ITT wants to demonstrate the feasibility of robots in supporting people, especially heavy tasks such as disaster rescue, victim search and access to areas of risk of collapse.
Currently, to help HyQReal be more resilient and resilient, the team has equipped it with an alloy frame, an outer shell of Kevlar, fiberglass and plastic.
