Default BigDog Quadruped Robot - один из самых продвинутых роботов (26 Feb 2006)

BigDog Quadruped Robot

BostonDynamics' BigDog quadruped robot is an advanced prototype under development for DARPA. The robot walks, runs and climbs on rough terrain (including mud and snow). Once BigDog is ready for field duty, it will help soldiers carry the many pounds of equipment needed in modern warfare. A typical load for a field solder is 65+ pounds; BigDog has so far carried 120 pounds. The robot itself is the size of a large dog, and weighs 75 kg.

Its onboard computer controls locomotion and a variety of sensors. Sensors for locomotion include joint position, joint force, ground contact, ground load, a laser gyroscope, and a stereo vision system. Other sensors focus on the internal state of BigDog, monitoring the hydraulic pressure, oil temperature, engine temperature, rpm, battery charge and others.

Three seconds later the game was done, the rat caught half across the areaway, gripped in gentle paws while a four-inch hollow steel needle plunged down from the proboscis...

Очень рекомендую скачать видео. Робота пинают ногами а он не падает сохраняя равновесие.

В конце концов вместо людей будут воевать роботы.
Фантастика становится реальной.
