A New Robot Aims to Do the Heavy Lifting

dMCv-3O9GTSzXL

The American robotics company Boston Dynamics recently made public a new robot called Stretch. It is designed to do only one job: to move containers, or boxes, in large storage buildings called warehouses.

Michael Perry is vice president of business development for Boston Dynamics. He said Stretch is the first robot designed for one job that the company has built. He added that the robot was developed because of requests from companies around the world.

"We heard pretty much universally across warehousing that truck unloading is one of the most physically difficult and unpleasant jobs... And that's where Stretch comes into play," Perry told Reuters.

Stretch has a small base that permits it to move around small spaces in existing warehouses without having to redesign them. The robot also has an arm with highly developed cameras that can identify and deal with boxes of many shapes and sizes.

Perry said Stretch can pick up boxes that weigh about 23 kilograms. He adds that the robot can move about 800 boxes in one hour.

Boston Dynamics is known for YouTube videos of its dog-like ‘Spot' and humanoid ‘Atlas' robots.

Perry said now is a good time for its latest robot to benefit from increasing demand for speedy home delivery.

Experts say the warehousing industry experienced strong growth in 2020. That growth is expected to continue this year. They say online buying during the coronavirus health crisis drove the need for a huge expansion in delivery services.

Boston Dynamics has not released a price for Stretch. But the company said the system can be set up without costly redesigns or investments in new buildings or structures.
