Boston Dynamics will begin mass production of robots SpotMini this summer
Last year at TechCrunch event dedicated to robotics company Boston Dynamics announced plans to withdraw the commercialization of its dog-robot SpotMini. The latest model of this robot will be the epitome of a decade of work on the four-legged machine, which the company developed specifically for the inspection and control of various industrial and office space. At TechCrunch event, which took place the previous day, she climbed on stage one of the founders and president of the Boston Dynamics Marc Raibert, finally presenting the production version robopsa.
The company plans to release this year about 100 SpotMini models. According Rayberta, their production should start in July and August. In Boston Dynamics already has a production line for the assembly, but it is said the head of the robotics company, currently available "beta version of the" four-legged machine, the design of which, various adjustments are made on time. The price of one copy SpotMini unfortunately did not yet reported. This information will be available closer to the summer.
As we approach the full mass production SpotMini, the company also shared information about what a machine is new upgrades: its design has received new, better and more reliable components, updated exterior casing that protects the robot, for example, in the fall. In addition, the robot got two cameras (front and rear), so now he can look over the situation immediately in all directions. The production version SpotMini will also be equipped with a robotic arm, which some reason wrongly perceive his head. Hand has spatial stabilization: even when the displacement of the robot from a certain point, it remains in the same position, in which there was that make the machine more flexible and useful for a variety of tasks.
Speaking at the event TechCrunch Raybert expressed the hope that their SpotMini can become a real "Android among robots" (or the coolest android androids among others). The machine is endowed with an advanced navigation system and offers a wide range of programming possibilities for its various applications in accordance with the tasks.

We have previously talked about a wheeled robot Handle, is intended to move a variety of goods in warehouses. Robots of this type have recently become very relevant among different companies. By the way, the recent acquisition by Boston Dynamics startup Kinema Systems, engaged in the development of machine vision technology, can further increase the interest in these machines.
