Chinese engineers are developing a vast, four-legged robot (yak-yak) capable of transporting a load weighing two bulls for military use. Powered by its four axial legs, the robot takes the form of a barrel, topped with a metal rack to carry goods. It resembles the famous robot robot robot, invented by Massachusetts-based Boston dynamics. Still, when watching the video closely, it appears that it may just be propaganda for the Chinese communist party.
China’s pro-government global times claims that the robot can carry up to 160 kilograms and travel at speeds of 10 kilometres per hour. According to the Chinese communist party’s people daily, it is the largest and heaviest robot and can cross off-road globally.
“the robot is suitable for different terrain types, including stairs, trenches and cliffs, not to mention mud roads, grasslands, deserts, and snowfields,” says the global times.
The yak’s robot has a lidar sensor to land in trenches and cliffs, which is not surprising because today’s commercial cleaning robots, such as the robot ok s5, have this advantage.
Mud roads, grasslands, deserts and snowfields are all, by nature, reasonably flat terrain with virtually no obstacles.
A video of the yak robot shows him having serious obstacle problems, such as rocks and mountain terrain.
The robot remains shown walking on straight and flat terrain or paved slopes, but when it walks on unpaved terrain — especially terrain with scattered rocks or unpaved slopes — the video footage changes to a new landscape.
One viewer shows the robot walking on rough terrain or slopes, but when you look closely, you can’t see the floor on which the robot walks.
The video also tries to hide the robot’s military background via a sign on the front of the robot hidden in the video (which is strange to hide), but part of it appears in another shot in the video. The video also shows a wheeled vehicle with a tower-like tank indicating that the Chinese army is considering using the robot for purposes other than transporting supplies.
Whatever the fate of the Four-Legged robot. It’s at least ten years late than similar pentagon projects.
THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE’S ADVANCED DEFENSE RESEARCH PROJECTS AGENCY (DARPA) TESTED A LEGGED ROBOT (LS3) IN 2012. As a result, WEIGHING 363 KILOGRAMS CAN CARRY 181 KILOGRAMS. A RANGE OF 32.2 KILOMETERS, AND CAN REMAIN CONTROLLED BY VOICE COMMANDS.
LS3 HAS BEEN MUCH BETTER AT CROSSING ROUGH TERRAIN. LS3 CROSSES ROCKY TERRAIN, CLIMBS ROCKY HILLS, WALKS EASILY AND QUICKLY CLEARLY THROUGH THE BUSH.
Robots can work on batteries, and when they run out, it takes hours to charge them; they are not suitable for the desert because they need to remain recharged. And can soon be seen in wars if battery technology can triple the range of leg robots. Yak robot developers have plenty of time to address the flaws people are trying to hide daily.
