The newest Unitree A1 is a machine with amazing capabilities. The robot is much smaller and lighter than SpotaMini, but at the same time it is not inferior to it in key issues, namely moving in even the most difficult terrain. In addition, the machine can work on batteries continuously for 4 hours. Today they will be able to see him in the footage, where the engineers showed his dancing skills.
The Unitree A1 weighs 12 kg including the battery and can travel at a maximum speed of 12 km / h. The robot can be remotely tips dump from a distance or function in an autonomous mode. It has an efficient battery and a vision system.
Robot fans should be delighted with this robo-dog. It can easily accompany them during morning jogging or walks in parks. Engineers have implemented behaviors that are well known to us from living quadrupeds in the A1. The device is constantly developed.
You can buy a small robo dog for personal use for less than $ 10,000. It is no secret here and no one should be surprised that the engineers when designing and building AlienGo and Unitree A1 were heavily inspired by SpotemMini from Boston Dynamics. You can even say that they copied it in large part, but this is a standard in the Middle Kingdom. Unitree Robotics is planning to start selling more of its robo dogs around the world later this year.
Interestingly, until recently the LaikaGo robot could be purchased for $ 45,000, and the newest for $ 10,000. This shows how, over the past few years, robotic technologies have developed rapidly and their prices are falling. They have been hosted at all the largest technology events for some time. However, they are very popular at universities and research centers, where they serve as objects for various tests.
