Legion of robot dogs display feat of strength by dragging a truck



Boston Dynamics is back with a new video showcasing the unnerving strength and balance of its legion of robot dogs.
The US-based robotics firm has just dropped a new video showing ten SpotMini robot dogs lashed together pulling a truck.
Apparently the incline was ‘one degree’ and the truck was parked in neutral.
It’s a very large, very heavy object and the robots don’t seem to have any trouble shifting the weight.

The SpotMini is a small four-legged robot that’s powered by batteries and according to the company: ‘comfortably fits in an office or home.’
It weighs 30kg which includes a robotic arm for opening doors and the like. The robots are also fitted with perception sensors which let them sense their surroundings so they can pick up or manipulate objects.
