Ridgewood NJ, Alphabet’s (Google) Everyday Robots Project team has released some of its prototype machines onto Google’s Bay Area campuses to carry out light custodial tasks. The robots are essentially arms on wheels that feature a multipurpose gripper. They have a head with cameras and sensors, including a spinning LIDAR unit for navigation. Alphabet aims to create robots that can manipulate never-before-seen objects in novel settings.
