Robots are upping their game when it comes to performing basic human tasks. However, if test footage is anything to go by, it’s still a long way before we see the doomsday AI scenario mooted by some experts.
Recent video from the Robotics Systems Lab shows its robot, ANYmal, summoning an elevator – the latest achievement from the four legged bot that has been under development for more than a year now.
Anymal uses one of its legs to reach the elevator button and then trots right in. The button is localized with help of a QR tag.
