The impressive ability of a four-legged robot BigDog


06/03/2013

In the first test video after the break, which was much later than the video NFL Combine, Boston Dynamics BigDog demonstrates the ability to use your hands to not only pick up from the floor and smash the unsuspecting cinder block, but also to coordinate the strength of the legs and torso, allowing it to stand and not collapse forward.

The creators of this mechanical monster argue that the robot does not fall upon the object radiating heat, but even this short video increases our interest and causes terrible fear. Look at the BigDog robot and wait for him in his nightmares today.

However, in most cases, the robots created for the benefit of mankind, and not to terrify, they serve as assistants to the person in a particular area. For example, in military operations, in addition to fighting arises themselves need to perform a variety of tasks. The U.S. government hopes that robots will reduce the burden on soldiers.

That’s why DARPA’s defense (DARPA) is investing in so many projects aimed at developing robots that can carry heavy loads, defuse bombs and cross minefields. In the past, these studies have focused on the development of bulky robots for heavy duty applications.

Now, DARPA began investing in small, lightweight robots that can perform tactical tasks together with the soldiers. The agency is going to give the company iRobot (creator Roomba) $ 625,000 for the development of the pneumatic robotic arm that can raise and lower things, and does not harm the soldiers at the meeting.
