Boston Dynamics’ robot dog has already become famous and has been applied to many fields in the world. If this so-called robot dog is bigger and has a head, yes, the Kawasaki that is very good at making motorcycles recently. Heavy Industry displayed the newly developed robotic goat “RHP Bex”, which also has various uses for walking on four legs, just like an enlarged version of a robotic dog.
In fact, this shape is very reminiscent of another set of comics “Steel God Soldier” launched in 2002 by Masami Chata, the author of “Saint Seiya”. The only difference is that there are no wings designed to make the mount fly.
The quadruped robot “RHP Bex” developed by Kawasaki Heavy Industries can be called a robot goat because of its head and horns. The main purpose of its research and development is to help the owner carry heavy objects.

This robotic goat belongs to a branch of the Kawasaki Kaleido project. In addition to Bex, which can carry loads in the shape of a goat, it also has two different types of robots, RHP Kaleido and RHP Friends, which are provided to care institutions or construction sites, etc. , used in occasions with high load requirements.
