Boston Dynamics looks to commercial future with Stretch
In the session on “The Next Generation of Autonomous Mobile Robots,” Kevin Blankespoor, senior vice president and general manager of warehouse robotics at Boston Dynamics, demonstrated the well-known Spot quadruped robot.
Blankespoor also explained that the Waltham, Mass.-based company has invested significant resources in its Stretch depalletizing robot. Mixed-SKU pallet handling is a goal for the mobile manipulator, he said.
Spot was also part of a demonstration with a security drone at the FedEx DART research and development center at the end of the conference.
