Boston Dynamics engineers are far from being the only ones to work on quadruped robots. Dog, Cheetah, spider, beetle, hard to say what most resembles the ANYmal fruit research from the RSL (Robotic Systems Lab) of ETH Zurich lab.
30 kg, this quadruped is able to move on uneven soils. Electric motor 20 give this little robot agility out of the ordinary since it can mount on a highly inclined scale including relying on her belly. According to its designers, this robot would have a greater than 2 hours autonomy, which will open it applications including on industrial sites. Capable of moving in a complex environment, it could make surveillance rounds and wear various sensors in an oil refinery or a gas site.
