Changing Your Idea of What Robots Can Do


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.

PETMAN - BigDog gets a Big Brother


PETMAN is an anthropomorphic robot for testing chemical protection clothing used by the US Army.

Unlike previous suit testers, which had to be supported mechanically and had a limited repertoire of motion, PETMAN will balance itself and move freely; walking, crawling and doing a variety of suit-stressing calisthenics during exposure to chemical warfare agents.

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

Natural, agile movement is essential for PETMAN to simulate how a soldier stresses protective clothing under realistic conditions.
The robot will have the shape and size of a standard human, making it the first anthropomorphic robot that moves dynamically like a real person.
