Unitree has announced a project to develop a humanoid robot named H1.
The H1 humanoid has a height of 71 inches (1800mm) and a weight of approximately 100 lbs (47kg). The key driving force behind its reported dexterity lies in its in-house developed high-torque joint motor and precision-engineered gear train. The robot uses a 3D LiDAR sensor and a depth camera for visual perception. It also supports 5 degrees of freedom (DOF) in its leg joints and 4 DOF in its arms.
According to Unitree, the plan is for the H1 robot to enter the commercial arena within the next 3-10 years. In terms of affordability, Unitree is projecting the price for the H1 model to be set below $90,000.
