Deep Robotics has unveiled the two latest models of its robot dogs, the Lite3 and X20, intended for research and industrial purposes, respectively.

According to Deep Robotics, the Lite3 has more advanced “dexterity, agility and balance” than previous models, capable of performing movements “such as front flips.”

“Lite3 is designed for educational and scientific research purposes,” the company said in a statement. “Using the latest self-developed joints, control systems and leading algorithms deep in the cloud, it has stronger, more agile, and more durable motion capabilities.”

Lite3 is equipped to carry loads of up to 16.5 pounds and can operate for up to 90 minutes with a range of 3 miles. 

The design’s interface also enables higher-quality perceptual capabilities, such as autonomous navigation, automatic obstacle stopping and avoidance, visual positioning and environmental reconstruction.

There have been three previous models of the Lite3. The latest iteration debuted at the 2023 International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2023) in London.

Alongside the Lite3, Deep Robotics also showcased the latest edition of its industrial quadruped robot, the X20, designed for tasks including power inspections, emergency rescues and site inspections.

"We are committed to driving automation in areas of work that involve high-risk yet repetitive manual tasks, especially in extreme weather, hazardous environments, and disaster conditions," said Zhen Chu, Deep Robotics’ head of algorithm mobility.

A trial of five X20 robots was conducted earlier this year, where the robots completed eight different scenarios across an unknown, 10,000-square-foot environment. The success of the trial was heralded by Deep Robotics as evidence of their efficacy in search and rescue operations.
