As town of Paris sleeps, Spot is difficult at work inspecting a few of RATP Group’s 35,000 civil works elements. The RATP Group (Autonomous Parisian Transportation Administration), is a French state-owned public transport operator and maintainer for the Larger Paris space. With 1000’s of civil works to examine every year, the corporate has turned to cellular robotics to examine hard-to-reach and unsafe areas as a way to preserve staff out of hurt’s method.

Thanks, Renee!

Seems like Agility Robotics and the brand new Digit had a productive (and widespread!) time at ProMat.

Thanks, Madeline!

We demonstrated Stretch, our autonomous case dealing with robotic, automating trailer unloading at Promat 2023. From effectivity to ease of use, hear from our crew to find out how Stretch works, what’s new, and what’s coming subsequent for warehouse automation!

KAIST has developed a quadrupedal robotic locomotion know-how that strikes up and down stairs with out assistance from visible or tactile sensors in a catastrophe scenario the place it’s unimaginable to see as a result of smoke and strikes with out falling over bumpy environments reminiscent of tree roots.


Right here’s how Pickle’s box-unloading robotic has been doing.

Fairly presumably essentially the most damaging fight robotic ever designed has been revamped and is heading to RoboGames 2023.

Use the code “HardCore” for a reduction in your RoboGames tickets!
