- Apptronik unveils Apollo, a humanoid robot designed to work alongside humans in warehouses and manufacturing.
- Apollo can lift up to 55 pounds, has a battery life of four hours, and features digital panels for communication.
Apptronik has made a humanoid robot named Apollo. This robot is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds. Apollo can carry up to 55 pounds and is designed to work in warehouses and factories.
The company says this new robot can help places where it’s hard to find workers. Jeff Cardenas, who helps run Apptronik, says, “Apollo is one of the most advanced tools humanity has ever created.”
Apollo’s body has screens to show messages and its battery life. The battery lasts four hours. You can also swap the battery to keep the robot working. Apollo is not alone.
The rise of robots like Apollo comes from years of study. Smartphones and cars that drive themselves have helped make robots better. A global sickness has also made robots more important.
It has made people invest more money in robots, making it hard to find workers. Apptronik’s work with robots started in 2017. They first made a robot for NASA.
Apollo can do a few things well, like taking items off trucks and putting them on shelves.
Apptronik wants to add more uses to the robot in time. Apollo can work in buildings made for people without big changes. Apollo can also work with other robots. The robot could be changed to use wheels instead of legs.
Apollo walks in a way that looks like how people walk. Jeff Cardenas says this is something robots found hard to do before.
Apollo has hands that can hold things but they will get better over time. Apptronik already has some companies that want to try using Apollo. These test runs will start next year.
In simple terms, Apollo is a robot that can do jobs in places like warehouses.
It is made to work alongside humans and other robots. It could be a big help in places where there are not enough workers.
