Video Friday: Venture GR00T – IEEE Spectrum

Video Friday is your weekly choice of superior robotics movies, collected by your folks at IEEE Spectrum robotics. We additionally submit a weekly calendar of upcoming robotics occasions for the following few months. Please ship us your occasions for inclusion.

Eurobot Open 2024: 8–11 Could 2024, LA ROCHE-SUR-YON, FRANCE
ICRA 2024: 13–17 Could 2024, YOKOHAMA, JAPAN
RoboCup 2024: 17–22 July 2024, EINDHOVEN, NETHERLANDS

Take pleasure in right this moment’s movies!

See NVIDIA’s journey from pioneering superior autonomous automobile {hardware} and simulation instruments to accelerated notion and manipulation for autonomous cellular robots and industrial arms, culminating within the subsequent wave of cutting-edge AI for humanoid robots.


In launch 4.0, we superior Spot’s locomotion skills due to the ability of reinforcement studying. Paul Domanico, Robotics Engineer at Boston Dynamics talks via how Spot’s hybrid strategy of mixing reinforcement studying with mannequin predictive management creates an much more steady robotic in probably the most antagonistic environments.

On the MODEX Exposition in March of 2024, Pickle Robotic demonstrated selecting freight from a random pile much like what you see in a messy truck trailer after it has bounced throughout many miles of freeway. The piles of bins had been by no means the identical and the demonstration was run dwell in entrance of crowds of onlookers 25 occasions over 4 days. No different robotic trailer/container unloading system has but to display this skill to select from unstructured piles.

RunRu is a car-like robotic, a robot-like automobile, with autonomy, sociability, and operability. This can be a new kind of non-public automobile that goals to create a “Jinba-Ittai” relationship with its passengers, who are usually not solely all the time assertive, but in addition generally whine.


Verdie went to GTC this 12 months and gained the hearts of individuals however perhaps not the opposite robots.

The actual motive why Digit’s legs look backwards is in order that it doesn’t bang its shins taking GPUs out of the oven.

In the meantime, a few of us can bake our GPUs with out even needing an oven.

P1 is LimX Dynamics’ progressive point-foot biped robotic, serving as an necessary platform for the systematic growth and modular testing of reinforcement studying. It’s utilized to advance the analysis and iteration of fundamental biped locomotion skills. The success of P1 in conquering forest terrain is a testomony to LimX Dynamics’ systematic R&D in reinforcement studying.

This video presents KIMLAB’s new three-fingered robotic hand, that includes delicate tactile sensors for enhanced greedy capabilities. Leveraging cost-effective 3D printing supplies, it ensures robustness and operational effectivity.


Varied perception-aware planning approaches have tried to boost the state estimation accuracy throughout maneuvers, whereas the function matchability amongst frames, a vital issue influencing estimation accuracy, has typically been missed. On this paper, we current APACE, an Agile and Notion-Conscious trajeCtory gEneration framework for quadrotors aggressive flight, that takes into consideration function matchability throughout trajectory planning.

On this video, we see Samuel Kunz, the pilot of the RSL Help Robotic Race staff from ETH Zurich, as he participates within the CYBATHLON Challenges 2024. Samuel accomplished all 4 designated duties—retrieving a parcel from a mailbox, utilizing a toothbrush, hanging a shawl on a clothesline, and emptying a dishwasher—with the assistance of an help robotic. He achieved an ideal rating of 40 out of 40 factors and secured first place within the race, finishing the duties in 6.34 minutes.


Florian Ledoux is a wildlife photographer with a deep love for the Arctic and its wildlife. Utilizing the Mavic 3 Professional, he steps onto the ice able to seize the uncooked magnificence and the tales of this chilly, distant place.
