The AI-powered quadruped can act like a car, a legged robot, and a humanoid robot, all in one robot for applications in delivery and logistics.

Key features:

  • locomotion skills are performed using reinforcement learning
  • driving speed of up to 6.2 m/s (22.32 km/h or 13.87 miles/h)
  • can stand up on two legs
