There will be a camera that goes in the arm. It didn't show an arm there. And then, that computer is one that's designed to take user code as opposed to the code that running in the robot. Why don't we bring out the robot. Sure, let's actually see it in action. So here's Spot Mini and Seth Davis is operating it. It's not running autonomously right now. Although many of the control functions are running on the on-board computer. Seth is the guy that you never actually see in the videos but he's in every single pass video there's been Seth or someone essentially doing Seth's job controlling the robot. And these videos that we've seen this week are the first time that this has really been demoed automonously. That's right So as I said, this is a platform. The arm is an extra cost option that you can take off, and that white box is a computer that really we're only using today because it's got a better radio than the standard radio. And in this environment where you all have cell phones and wi-fi It's sometimes a challenge to get that working. So, this is using a spread spectrum radio that makes it easier. The robots omnidirectional. When it came out it was a number of different walking gaits. It's omnidirectional so Steph can, just using a joystick, steer it around. And we'll have the robot out in the lobby after the talk and some of you will get a chance to drive. Let me just show a few things on there. There's cameras here. There's two sets of stereo cameras. There is also one on the left. You want to turn in place? So there's also one back here. There's that **** cam. There's another one on this side. Is that a trademarked name, the **** cam? We should trademark that. Yeah, get on that. The joints, this is all electric. So even though Atlas has hydraulics, it's got a quick disconnect batter underneath, which youcan't see here. And gain, the arm, which has similar technology to the to the legs. One of the things we love to do is show that you can stabilize the hand while the body moves. And this looks like kind of a show-off trick, but really, this is important if you're going to do manipulation in the world, you want to think about how the hand moves and not worry about the body. And I can do that, I can touch Brian over here on his shoulder, and I can move my body all around, and still my forces between me and Brian are pretty modest. And so we're building up that to do mobile manipulation and other tricks. So we're not doing autonomous control, but you'll see that the sensors can be used to go over simple obstacles So the robot is looking ahead and seeing these, and using quadratic programing in order to plan its footsteps so that it goes over smoothly. You can see it arches the body up a little bit in advance. There it missed the thing a little bit. Do you want to go over sideways? This is a little bit riskier for you. So that because we have camera, or you can go backwards if you want. Because we have cameras on the side it can see the box and step over, notice that the back legs stepped up and the front legs didn't in that case. [BLANK_AUDIO] Thank you Seth, thank you Spot.
