Boston Dynamics is an engineering company that specializes in robotics and human simulation. Our customers have applications that range from military robotics to simulation-based training to physics-based virtual prototyping.
The company began as a spinoff of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where Marc Raibert and his colleagues first developed robots that run and maneuver like animals. Their groundbreaking work inspired the launch of Boston Dynamics in 1992.
Today, organizations worldwide, from the United States Army, Navy and Marines to Sony Corporation, turn to Boston Dynamics for advice and solutions to their robotics and human simulation needs. Our unusual combination of advanced research and skilled engineering yields sophisticated yet practical solutions and products. We are setting the standard for human simulation technology worldwide and our robots are unparalleled in agility and rough-terrain capability.
Here are some examples of how our team's skill and innovative approach have helped our clients reach their goals.
Sony Corporation turned to Boston Dynamics for help developing its line of entertainment robots. We adapted our physics-based human simulation to work for Sony's humanoid robot, QRIO. The result is a physics-based robot simulator used to develop mechanical designs, control systems, and motion planning. Using the simulator, Sony's engineers test ideas for robot design, control and behavior before building them into the physical robot.
Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT) included Boston Dynamics on its team for an ambitious project to combine Hollywood dramatization, advanced military simulation, and artificial intelligence to train the US Army's officers. Mission Rehearsal Exercise is the resulting system that points the way to how future generations of officers will learn to make difficult decisions in complex environments. Boston Dynamics and ICT are now in their fifth year of combining ICT's advanced artificial intelligence with Boston Dynamics' advanced virtual humans.
Marine Expeditionary Rifle Squad (MERS) is the US Marine Corps' bold initiative to develop marine systems that will meet the challenges of the 21st century. Boston Dynamics has been working with the Marines for several years to develop physics-based human simulations for Virtual Prototyping. We are testing innovative equipment designs using detailed simulation to predict how they will affect performance and to help select the next generation of MERS equipment.
