Robotic Steve I: Origins

A few weeks back, a handful of brave Westies began a quest to build a robot dog. When this concept was pitched, it was widely regarded as some animatronic dog covered in servos that would walk around – in reality, it’s a Machine Learning and Machine Vision platform. The goals of the project are to …
