French army tests Boston Dynamics' Spot robot
Students at France’s École Militaire Interarmes (Combined Arms School) last month tested Boston Dynamics’ Spot during recent exercises. The legged robot was reportedly one of several that the French military is considering for tasks such as reconnaissance. Waltham, Mass.-based Boston Dynamics toldThe Verge that it was not aware of the military tests, but the company’s BigDog, a predecessor of Spot, was designed as a robotic pack mule for the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
