What does it take to haul a massive truck? Just 10 robots in the shape and size of an average dog, apparently.
The US robotics company Boston Dynamics has posted a video of its SpotMini robots pulling a large truck across the company’s parking lot with a slight uphill slope.
Ten of these canine-inspired robots, weighing 30 kg each, were required to execute the task. Although the vehicle was in neutral gear, a driver was present at the wheel of the vehicle, presumably to prevent any accidents. “These Spot robots are coming off the production line now and will be available for a range of applications soon,” the caption under the video read, hinting at a possible commercial debut of the machine.
