Quadruped machines are able to identify, follow a target and move around its environment autonomously with the help of depth sensors.
The Chinese robot manufacturer Unitree Robotics, based in Hangzhou city, Zhejiang province, has shared on social media the video of a large group of A1 quadruped robots moving with perfect timing.
The artwork has gone viral, receiving nearly 400,000 reproductions and Twitter.
According to the company’s website, the A1s are equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) and depth perception cameras, a technology that allows them to create a three-dimensional map of your environment in real time.
The robot – with a design similar to the Spot mechanized dog, developed by the American Boston Dynamics – can identify humans, set a target, and autonomously track it dodging all the obstacles on your way.
Likewise, the ‘animal’ is capable of performing complex acrobatic stunts, such as back somersaults, running at a speed close to 12 kilometers per hour and carrying up to 5 kilos of payload, all with an autonomy of between 1 and 2.5 hours on a single charge.
According to the manufacturer, these characteristics make A1 a perfect companion for jogging. The model is available for pre-order, although product and shipping prices and delivery times are not specified.
