Boston Dynamics’ Handle Robot is quite special. It stands 6.5ft tall and can travel at speeds up to 9 mph and jump 4ft. Handle has electric & hydraulic actuators. It can perform efficiently on flat and uneven surfaces. Boston Dynamics has shared a new video that can autonomously move crates up to 33lbs with its large gripper.
Handle can work with pallets that are 1.2m deep and 1.7m tall. Handle’s on-board vision system allows it to track marked pallets for navigation and find individual boxes for picking & placing.
