SpotMini Autonomous Navigation

Published on May 10, 2018
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. (The QR codes visible in the video are used to measure performance, not for navigation.)

  • My team just did super badly in the vex robotics competition, and this makes me feel way worse.

  • Do you make the navigation map yourself? Or is this a robot based on the area determined by the sensors?

  • you niggas never seen black mirror?

  • cant wait for these things to destroy mankind

  • Reminds me of the Hunter from Half-Life 2 Ep.2 for some reason.

  • I don't like this creation. I shall put a baseball bat across it if I was to ever see it.

  • Almost like a 🐕

  • Not seen in any of these videos: Spot marking its territory. C'mon: we all know that the techs have CONSIDERED that stunt.

  • Does it come with machine guns?

  • Please make sure China doesn't steal that intellectual property.

  • Never gets tired. Will hunt you down.

  • Why don't we starting using this Technology yet?! It has so much practical uses. Aren't they for sale to people that could use it?

  • Instead of turning round atop of the stairs he should just extend his joints up and over to bend the other way, little tit bit from a random guy sat at home on his phone at 1pm on a Wednesday to you masters of robot technology

  • Just like my toddler, going down the stairs backwards. Safety first!

  • Black Mirror tried to warn us...

  • Question: Why didn't it try to optimize path through the grass patch?

  • M E T A L G E A R : H E N T A I

  • It is magnificent! I demand 10 000 000 to be build, and be given free-freedom-law, so that they, as the second global race of planet earth, can have same rights, as their human neighbours. Ladies and Gentelman, new era awaits us.

  • if you suddenly walked up in front of it, would it know how to stop or avoid you?

  • Now that the robot can walk around on it’s own it’s just the Boston Dynamics Hq pet
