There’s a new robotic goat in town, Spot. Bex Kawasaki is a character from the Kawasaki franchise. Bex is a four-legged robot that was uncannily designed after an Ibex, a kind of wild goat endemic to regions of Eurasia and Africa. It was unveiled at the International Robot Exhibition in Tokyo last week. Bex is the result of the company’s Kaleido initiative, which began in 2015 and has focused on bipedal robots. Kawasaki’s developers chose to build a robot that could travel fast across the level ground while also navigating difficult terrain halfway through the project. Bex has a set of wheels on its knees which allows it to move faster on flat surfaces than while walking.
Bex is virtually a child
Yes, Bex is virtually a child of the 2011 Kawasaki Koleos concept car. Bex’s robotic legs were inspired by Ibex, the North American goat that lives in the highlands of North Africa and Northern Europe. Bex looks most similar to an ibex, but it’s actually capable of a lot more than just walking. Kawasaki also released a video that shows Bex traveling along a chain-link fence. The robot is controlled by a person seated on the ground. It’s basically like a video game where you play as this quadruped robot and it’s basically every kid’s dream. I think it’s kind of cool.
Kawasaki’s Spot is a “super humanoid”
Kawasaki says its Spot is a “super humanoid” and that it’s a major step in the company’s robotics ambitions. The quadruped robot that has been developed by Kawasaki Robotics is the result of a collaboration between the company and a French robotics company called Aixo. Kawasaki is playing a major role in the world of robotics right now. It’s not just one company, either. Kawasaki has created a quadruped robot that can be ridden.
Bex has a payload capacity of about 220 pounds. Apart from transporting construction materials and the like, Kawasaki envisions it performing remote industrial site inspections, similar to what Spot does at Hyundai factories in Korea. To that purpose, Bex’s upper half is completely modular,
Bottom Line about Robotic Goat
so it doesn’t have to resemble a goat. We’ve found these videos on Youtube, but they’re a bit hard to understand. The spot is a quadruped robot that was uncannily designed after an Ibex, a kind of wild goat endemic to regions of Eurasia and Africa. It was unveiled at the International Robot Exhibition in Tokyo last week. The spot was designed to be a four-legged robot that could travel fast across the level ground while also navigating difficult terrain halfway through the project.
