SpotMicro is an open source robotic dog

SpotMicro is an open source robotic dog similar to the theBoston Dynamic SpotMini.

The Korean engineer of SpotMicro, Deok-Yeon Kim ,  designed each component very close to the original but using common components like servo motors and Arduino Mega. His contribution is impressive and positivelity surprise all robotics enthusiast that were waiting for the commercial version 🤖.


SpotMicro is a quadruped robot compatible with the OpenCat project  and the Petoi-Nybble Community that maintains the code of OpenCat offered support to the project :

Try the code of OpenCat. It only requires regular Arduino Uno for motion.

The robot features ultrasonic sensors for obstacle detection, bluetooth communication for controls, and gyroscope for orientations. The possible functionalities of quadruped robots are similar and includes :
  • surveillance
  • map of environment
  • sense and avoid obstacles
  • climb stairs
  • payload transportation
  • movement in rough terrains
  • higher agility and speed
