At the world's premier energy conference CERAWeek, Kevon Mayers, Solutions Architect at Amazon Web Services (AWS), showcased a demo he's been working on over the last month or so around IoT connected robot dog Bittle and how they can be used to improve worker safety:
"They are all able to be controlled via an AWS Amplify web application that I built, and can respond to events from an air quality wearable sensor that my coworker Constantine V. developed. They also have the ability to be controlled via Amazon Alexa voice commands, developed by another of my coworkers, Prathyusha Nandam ! The solution is fully deployable with a custom HashiCorp Terraform module I wrote. The end-to-end solution will be released open source soon. "
Even though Petoi Bittle is a small robot dog that may not be conceived as an industrial robot for IoT automation, this AWS demo has received a lot of positive feedback from industry players looking for affordable quadruped robots that can go into small spaces where big robot dogs such as Boston Dynamic Spot Mini robot dogs can't go.
With the affordable price and camera and sensor support via Ardunio and RaspBerry Pi, Petoi Bittle open source robot dogs are a great robotics solution for IoT automation in many different industrial robotics use cases.
