Boston Dynamics Visits SEED to Discuss "Big Dog" Robot Project

Washington, DC - In the midst of one of the worst snowstorms in DC history, Dr. Marc Raibert and Ms. Cassie Moreira flew in from Boston Dynamics to share information about BD's Big Dog and Rhex robots. As a result of this visit, four 10th grade girls were selected to take a trip to Boston to spend the day with Cassie at BD exploring the technology.

Big Dog, designed and developed by Boston Dynamics, is a "rough-terrain robot that walks, runs, climbs and carries heavy loads" (taken from http://www.bostondynamics.com). RHex is a rugged man-portable robot with extraordinary rough terrain mobility. RHex climbs in rock fields, mud, sand, vegetation, railroad tracks, telephone poles and up slopes and stairways (taken from http://www.bostondynamics.com).
