people freaked out after robot dogs opened a door. now they’re resisting humans
Now imagine that the Raptors are true, become headless robotic dogs that can walk stairs, open the door with robotic claws, and often overcome the insignificant obstacles provided by human technicians at Boston power.
Robotics released a video last week showing their two yellow spot mini robots helping each other get into a door.
Now, the company has released a sequel, one of which is 2. foot-
The tall robot is controlled by an invisible human driver who points the robot\'s claw to the door handle and issues the \"Go\" command.
Since then, SpotMini\'s camera
In order to complete the task of opening the door, the guidance and independent programming began.
In addition to providing nightmare-like fuel for humans and plot lines for bleak technology --
In the World TV program \"Black Mirror\", robots can also bring more benefits.
In nature or people-
For example, to create a disaster, they can help navigate situations that would otherwise put people in danger (
Think about checking gas leaks in an explosion or grabbing from the ruins --out building). (
SpotMini\'s big cousin, BigDog, is funded by the Pentagon\'s research arm, a potential battlefield ally who carries heavy ammunition and helps evacuate wounded troops.
But the Marine Corps decided in 2015 that the big dog was too loud to give the position to the enemy. )
In the latest video, a man temporarily blocked spot mini\'s claws using wooden tools carried by Homo sapiens in Canada and the northeastern United States --a hockey stick.
The man then presses on the door to prevent the spot mini from passing through, and when that happens, he pulls the strap at the back of the robot, twisting its metal joint, turn the pivot of the torque on the smooth floor.
But spoomini is ready for such attacks.
The video\'s company summary says its software adjusts the legs and body when the body is out of balance.
Then, the robot dog stood up and walked through the door, although the audience did not know what was waiting for it on the other side.
Boston Dynamics did not respond to a request for comment on the video release.
Owned by Japan\'s SoftBank Group, the company is part of Japan\'s investment in robotics as its population ages and greater demand for care and other assistance for the elderly.
In early February
In the video, two observers apparently sailed on the same obstacle.
A claw-free SpotMini approaches the door, analyzes its position with a camera mounted on the door frame, and makes way for a claw-free colleague to open the door.
In the display of the spirit of the digital Knight, the second robot even opens the door politely for another robot.
The video got on fire on social media.
Over the course of nine days, 3 million people thought history might one day be recorded as a terrible warning. (
The New York Times technology reporter Mike Issac has proposed a reverse acquisition.
\"The robot dog is a good boy,\" he wrote on Twitter . \". )
This is not the first time a hockey stick has been used to ridicule the Boston power robot.
Another popular video released on last February showed that the company\'s researchers poked when the humanoid robot Atlas tried to pick up and move the box on the ground.
It was lovely because after nine months Atlas showed its back flip.
Perhaps these human-like advances provide clues as to why the latest video is releasing a disclaimer on YouTube :(
Note: This test does not stimulate or harm the robot. )
This is a notable addition, though it may be too late to do.
These robots are designed to learn from obstacles, and so far the biggest obstacle seems to be human, not the door.
Humans program with memory.
Therefore, robots have to remember when humans will block its way.
