Have you heard of Little Dog by Boston Dynamics?
It’s the miniature version of the famous Big Dog for military use. This robotic mule is able to transport material autonomously in hostile terrain.
It’s fascinating just how much this little quadruped robot looks like a real animal.
The little dog has four paws each with 3 electric motors. Its sensors can measure angles, the distance in relation to the ground and the orientation of its body.
Thus, this Little Dog can climb all alone on rough terrain without falling or getting stuck.
