    DogBot

    Lightweight, agile quadruped robot for AI research and enterprise applications

    Introducing DogBot

    DogBot was originally designed as an in-house platform for developing AI systems which could interact with the real world, before being pursued as a product, aimed initially at fellow AI researchers.

     

    DogBot is no longer on the market, as React AI is focused on software and the opportunities of the latest AI.

     

    DogBot was marketed under the React Robotics brand.

    DogBot in Academia

    Tango was given a new home at the Robot Intelligence Lab at Imperial College London, to help push forward the boundaries of robotic control.

    Our partners Lenovo took Gyro and the team to show off at Autodesk University in Las Vegas.

    DogBot in the Real World

     

    Our aim with DogBot was to produce a robot with the capabilities of navigating through real-world environments, with all their messiness and unpredictabilty.

     

    We took Gyro to a high-rise building site in London, and put it through its paces equipped with an industrial scanner produced by our partners at Faro

     

    You can see more on the Lenovo news website.

    DogBot’s Legacy

     

    We moved on from DogBot, but wanted to leave something behind, and we love open-source at React AI. So we uploaded a URDF file to GitHub so anyone can place a DogBot model in a simulated environment.

     

    We also uploaded the CAD files and supporting materials for the real thing, to Hackaday, so you could try building your own!

     

    Footnote: Where are they now?

     

     

    Tango is still at Imperial College, but after one of our home offices was flooded in 2022, during the refurbishment YoYo and Gyro were relocated to their current spots, dangling from the ceiling!
