Meet NASA's 'Mars Dog' - Au Spot

Boston Dynamics' Spot robot is a refined version of Boston Dynamics’ world-famous Spot robot, which has performed various dangerous duties on Earth, including assistance of coronavirus patients remotely. The four-legged machines can trot at speeds of up to 3 miles (5 kilometers) per hour, about 38 times quicker than the Curiosity rover. Artificial intelligence will be used by the “Mars dogs” to avoid barriers, pick between numerous pathways, and identify scientifically exciting items. The Spot robot can also travel great distances over challenging terrain and recover quickly from falls.
