H1 comes equipped with 3D lidar and a depth camera to enable its autonomous navigation through a space. According to the specs described in the video. the robot stands at 71 inches tall, and weighs 100 lbs. It has a walking speed of 3.4mph, which is about the same as the average human. Unitree is currently developing robotic hands for it.

Unitree has not specified a release date for H1, but the company said it would reach commercialization in the next three to 10 years.

Unitree has already established its presence in the robotics market with several quadruped robots. In July, the company shared a glimpse of its new four-legged design, the Go2, which it said is the latest example of its “embodied AI” technology and could be the “pet of the future”.

Go2 is equipped with 4D lidar to enable multi-terrain navigation, with the robot able to climb stairs, play fetch, take photos and play music.
