There’s much more to the robot dog than meets the eye. The robot dog represents quadruped mobile robotics – and we’ve only seen a fraction of its potential future
applications so far.
We have the honour to represent Unitree Robotics’ products in Europe. Our constantly expanding range includes products from consumer versions to weather-protected industrial ones. Unitree products are excellent development platforms for operators such as research institutes that want to get a kick start to their own walking robotics research.
The Unitree Go1 Pro robot dog may be small and compact, but this robot dog has excellent performance. Thanks to its top features, you’ll be able to utilise the robot dog for optimal purposes.
Intelligence and versatility
The multiple uses of the robot dog are based on its features with a wide range of potential utilisations. You can also program the robot dog yourself.
In addition to the dog’s default settings, you can program it for the purposes of your choice.
The robot dog keeps track of its surroundings with a total of ten fisheye lens cameras.
Thanks to its smart tracking system, the robot dog can accompany you on a run, for example.
The robot dog is able to avoid obstacles on its own.
Managing even the most challenging environments
The Unitree B1 robot dog combines a wide range of features that allow it to operate in challenging environments and weather conditions. The rugged B1 is ideal for industrial, agricultural, research, security patrols, search and rescue and public safety applications.
The robot dog keeps track of its surroundings with a total of ten fisheye lens cameras. It utilises the cameras when tracking a human, for example. You can also follow the camera image via an app on your mobile phone or tablet. Two of the cameras are located in the front, as the dog’s “eyes”. There are additional cameras on the robot dog’s chin, stomach and sides.
You control the dog using a controller with a set of features. You can also set your phone or tablet in the middle of the controller, and use your screen to see what’s in the robot dog’s field of vision and where the dog is going. You can also program the dog to move on its own. The best thing about the robot dog is that it’s so easy to use. Controlling the dog is comparable to playing Playstation or driving an RC car.
In addition to the dog’s default settings, you can program it for the purposes of your choice. You can program both high-level control that covers all robot movements and low-level control, such as joint movement and walking routines. The programming language is C++ and examples for programming are available on Github.
The prices of Unitree’s robot dogs start at approx. 5200 euros. The price is affected by the model of the dog and any additional parts.
