3. Telsa’s Optimus Gen 2 Robots

Optimus, also known as Tesla Bot, is a general-purpose humanoid under development by Tesla. It was announced at the company’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) Day event on August 19, 2021. So far three versions have been released with Optimus Gen 2 being the latest.

Tesla says its new prototype is 30% faster, 10 kg lighter, and has sensors on all fingers.

3. Boston Dynamics’ Spot Robots

In release 4.0, they advanced Spot’s locomotion abilities thanks to the power of reinforcement learning. Paul Domanico, Robotics Engineer at Boston Dynamics talks through how Spot’s hybrid approach of combining reinforcement learning with model predictive control creates an even more stable robot in the most antagonistic environments.

4. EVE’s end to end autonomy in house chores

We’re excited to share the latest progress on teaching EVEs general-purpose skills. Everything in the video is all autonomous, all 1X speed, all controlled with a single set of neural network weights.

5. Unitree H1: The Backflipping robot

What we find interesting about the Unitree H1 doing a standing flip is where it decides to put its legs.

6. Verdie Steals the Show

Verdie went to GTC this year and won the hearts of people but maybe not the other robots.

7. DEEPRobotics’ robot dog parkour

The “DEEPRobotics AI+” merges AI capabilities with robotic software systems to continuously boost embodied intelligence. The showcased achievement is a result of training a new AI and software system.

8. Apptronik’s Apollo: A Collaborative Biped for Warehouses

Apptronik unveiled the new Apollo humanoid robot. Apollo is a collaborative, bipedal robot, roughly human-sized. It is designed initially for logistics and warehousing applications, carrying boxes, crates, and totes. This is the latest generation of legged robotic solution from Apptronik.

Editors note: the sections of the video showing the use cases is simulated, while the other sections are video of the actual robot.

9. Agility Robotics’ Digit

Agility Robotics unveiled the next generation of Digit, the first human-centric, multi-purpose robot made for logistics work.

Digit is multipurpose, so it can execute a variety of tasks and adapt to many different workflows; a fleet of Digits will be able to switch between applications depending on current warehouse needs and seasonal shifts.
