Did You Know?
Digit is a direct descendant of Cassie, Agility's first robot, but Digit has a torso with sensors and a pair of arms.
Digit's arms are designed to help with the robot's mobility and balance, as they swing in coordination with the gait.
Digit's arms also allow Digit to catch itself when it falls, and reorient its body to get back up.
Digit is strong enough to pick up and stack boxes weighing up to 18kg (40 lb).
Agility's founders believe robots like Digit will one day help take care of people in their homes, assist with disaster response, and deliver packages to our front doors.
Agility plans to start shipping Digit to customers in early 2020.

Founded in 2015, Agility Robotics develops highly capable bipedal robots for applications that include logistics, telepresence, automated inspection, entertainment, and research. The company's goal is to build legged machines that can go anywhere a person can go. Its first robot, released in 2016, is a bipedal platform called Cassie, a dynamic walking robot that can traverse rough terrain and step over obstacles. Unveiled in 2019, Digit is Agility's second robot. Its legs are similar to Cassie's, but Digit is equipped with a torso full of sensors as well as a pair of arms, used for balance, mobility, and manipulation.
