Unitree Robotics released its new, smaller humanoid model, the G1.
Unitree Robotics announced the release of its new G1 humanoid robot, a smaller humanoid compared to its H1 offering, that comes with a base model price of $16K.

Unitree Robotics recently introduced its latest humanoid robot, the Unitree G1 Humanoid agent, AI avatar.

The robot comes in two models, G1 and G1 EDU, and is significantly smaller than its other humanoid robot, the H1.

G1 humanoid specs

The G1 is about 127 centimeters tall and weighs about 35 kilograms. It has flexibility beyond ordinary people and unlocks unlimited movement potential, according to the company. The walking speed of G1 is about 2m/s. It has a large joint movement space, with 23-43 joints, and the maximum joint torque can reach 120N.m.

G1 can perform high-load dynamic movements, such as dynamic stand-up, seat folding, dance stick and more. At the same time, G1 is based on deep reinforcement learning and simulation training, and uses the accelerated development of AI to continuously upgrade and evolve.

G1 can be equipped with the optional Dex3-1 force-controlled dexterous hand. Through force-position hybrid control, G1 can simulate the precise operation ability of the human hand and accurately control various objects. Whether it is smashing walnuts, carrying heavy objects or picking up fragile objects such as eggs, the G1 can demonstrate high accuracy and stability.

G1 can also handle delicate operations such as opening soda bottles and welding. These tasks are often considered difficult for machines, and Unitree says G1 can handle these tasks.

The G1 is equipped with Intel RealSense D435 and LIVOX-MID360 3D lidar, which can achieve 360° detection and perception. These sensors provide a powerful perception hardware foundation, allowing G1 to better understand the surrounding environment. In addition, the G1 power supply module supports two hours of battery life and quick disassembly.

There are two versions of the G1 humanoid robot released this time, the G1 and G1 EDU. The price of G1 is $16K. The advanced version, G1 EDU, provides a combination of different modules, and the price is customized according to different customer needs.

Compared with G1, G1 EDU supports Dex3-1 force-controlled dexterous hand installation, optional tactile sensor arrays, greater knee joint torque and arm load and optional NVIDIA Jetson Orin high computing power module to support secondary development.
