【波士顿动力的机器狗组队拉卡车】波士顿动力公司的机器狗不仅仅可以走路、跳跃和爬楼梯,该公司刚发布了一段10个机器人一起拉动卡车前行的视频。视频中的这款机器人名为Spotpower,只需10个Spotpower就能以大约1度的角度将一辆挂着空挡的卡车往山上拉。该公司打算在今年晚些时候推出这款机器人,希望能应用于包括建筑、运输、安全和家庭援助等多种领域。

Terrifying robo-dogs now travel in PACKS: Boston Dynamics releases footage of 10 bots working together to haul a truck

  • Shocking new video shows the Spotpower robot dogs hauling a massive truck
  • Boston Dynamics said 10 robots dragged the truck uphill across a parking lot
  • Firm is now rolling the robo-dogs off the production line for sale later this year 

Boston Dynamics' robots can do more than just walk, jump and climb stairs.

In a new video, the company demonstrated just how powerful its Spotpower robot dogs have gotten, as a pack of them are shown pulling a truck across a parking lot.

All it takes is 10 of the advanced robots to drag a vehicle that's in neutral gear.

Boston Dynamics noted that the robots were able to haul the truck at an approximately 1 degree angle uphill, though it doesn't say what the distance was or the duration of the haul.

That said, it still signifies a remarkable feat for the robot dogs, which were first introduced in 2017 as a four-legged nimble robot.

Boston Dynamics noted that its robot dogs are so advanced that they're now being rolled off the production line.

'These Spot robots are coming off the production line now and will be available for a range of applications soon,' Boston Dynamics said.

The company didn't specify just how the Spotpower will be put to work, but previous suggestions have included deployment in warehouses, disaster relief situations or even security purposes.

It's also unclear what the robots will be priced at or when they'll launch.

The firm said the robots were able to haul the truck at a nearly 1 degree angle uphill, adding that its robot dogs are so advanced that they're now being rolled off the production line

It comes as Boston Dynamics has said it hopes to have the Spotpower available for purchase by sometime this year.

A video shared by the firm last October showed the robot being put to use in the workplace.

In it, the firm said Spot autonomously navigated two construction sites in Tokyo and used a 'specialized payload for surveying work progress.'

Spot is just under three feet tall and has 3D vision, as well as 17 joints to help it move nimbly.

Boston Dynamics CEO Marc Raibert said earlier this year that he hopes Spot can be used in a variety of industries, including construction, delivery, security and home assistance.

Raibert also denied skeptics' beliefs that his firm's robots would one day be used to kill - insisting that they're more likely to take on the role of servant in the future.

'We think about that, but that's also true for cars, airplanes, computers, lasers,' Raibert said.

'Every technology you can imagine has multiple ways of using it. If there's a scary part, it's just that people are scary. I don't think the robots by themselves are scary.'
