Boston Dynamics: Changing Your Idea of What Robots Can Do 2013.12.15

Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - December 15, 2013 - Boston Dynamics builds advanced robots with remarkable behavior: mobility, agility, dexterity and speed. We use sensor-based controls and computation to unlock the capabilities of complex mechanisms. Our world-class development teams take projects from initial concept to proof-of-principle prototyping to build-test-build engineering, to field testing and low-rate production. Organizations worldwide, from DARPA, the US Army, Navy and Marine Corps to Sony Corporation turn to Boston Dynamics for advice and for help creating the most advanced robots on Earth. Boston Dynamics has assembled an extraordinary team to develop the LS3, including engineers and scientists from Boston Dynamics, Carnegie Mellon, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Bell Helicopter, AAI Corporation and Woodward HRT. PETMAN is an anthropomorphic robot designed for testing chemical protection clothing. Boston Dynamics' partners for the program are MRIGlobal, Measurement Technologies Northwest, Smith Carter CUH2A (SCC), SRD, and HHI Corporation. DI-Guy is software and content for adding lifelike human characters to real-time visual simulations. DI-Guy is used by all branches of the US Armed Forces and by leading organizations worldwide such as: Raydon, Presagis, VT MÄK, Boeing, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, SAIC, BAE Systems, CAE, Rockwell-Collins, General Dynamics, Honeywell, Alion, Flight Safety, BMW, Daimler, Chrysler, Ford, RUAG, Elbit, Rafael, BVR, Kongsberg, EADS, Hitachi, Mitsubishi . . .

LS3 is a rough-terrain robot designed to go anywhere Marines and Soldiers go on foot, helping carry their load.
Each LS3 carries up to 400 lbs of gear and enough fuel for a 20-mile mission lasting 24 hours.

PETMAN also simulates human physiology within the protective suit by controlling temperature, humidity and sweating, all to provide realistic test conditions.

CHEETAH - Fastest Legged Robot

The Cheetah robot is the fastest legged robot in the World, surpassing 29 mph, a new land speed record for legged robots.

The previous record was 13.1 mph, set in 1989 at MIT.

The Cheetah robot has an articulated back that flexes back and forth on each step, increasing its stride and running speed, much like the animal does.

The current version of the Cheetah robot runs on a high-speed treadmill in the laboratory where it is powered by an off-board hydraulic pump and uses a boom-like device to keep it running in the center of the treadmill.

The next generation Cheetah robot, WildCat, is designed to operate untethered.

WildCat recently entered initial testing and is scheduled for outdoor field testing later in 2013.

Cheetah robot development is funded by DARPA's Maximum Mobility and Manipulation program.

SandFlea - Leaps Small Buildings in a Single Bound

Sand Flea is an 11 pound robot that drives like an RC car on flat terrain, but can jump 30 ft into the air to overcome obstacles.

That is high enough to jump over a compound wall, onto the roof of a house, up a set of stairs or into a second story window.

The robot uses gyro stabilization to stay level during flight, to provide a clear view from the onboard camera, and to ensure a smooth landing.

Sand Flea can jump about 25 times on one charge. Boston Dynamics is developing Sand Flea with funding from the US Army’s Rapid Equipping Force (REF).

Earlier versions of Sand Flea were developed by Sandia National Laboratory with funding from DARP) and JIEDDO.

About Boston Dynamics


Boston Dynamics is an engineering company that specializes in building dynamic robots and software for human simulation.

 
 
The company began as a spin-off from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where National Academy of Engineering member Marc Raibert and his colleagues first developed robots that ran and maneuvered like animals.

They founded the company in 1992, and their ground-breaking work continues to inspire several of the company's activities.

Today the company creates a variety of innovative robots, including BigDog, a quadruped robot for travel on rough-terrain, PETMAN, an anthropomorphic robot for testing equipment, RISE, a robot that climbs vertical surfaces, SquishBot, a shape-changing chemical robot that moves through tight space, and many others.

The company also develops tools for human simulation.

DI-Guy is a human simulation product used for simulation-based training, UAV training, law-enforcement training, mission-planning and many other applications.

DI-Guy has become the defacto standard for human simulation as used in military applications; it is used by leading organizations world-wide, including all branches of the US Armed Forces.

Digital Biomechanics is a physics-based human simulation product used to design and evaluate equipment used on the human body, such as backpacks, helmets, body armor and the like.

Boston Dynamics has an extraordinary technical team of engineers and scientists.

The team seamlessly combines advanced analytical thinking with boots-in-the-mud practicality.

We pride ourselves in building machines that are both innovative and actually work.
