Boston Dynamic’s Atlas humanoid robot hit again : the robot showcase its morning gym routine and make us speechless.
In the new update Atlas AI includes motion interpolation calculation for its whole body . the new algorithm transforms high-level descriptions of each maneuver into dynamically-feasible reference motions.
Atlas tracks the motions using a model predictive controller that smoothly blends from one maneuver to the next. Using this approach, the routine significantly faster than previous gym routines, with a performance success rate of about 80%.
Similar to Spot robot, this is a research platform designed to push the limits of whole-body mobility. Atlas’s advanced control system and state-of-the-art hardware give the robot the power and balance to demonstrate human-level agility.
- 28 Hydraulic Actuators
- Speed : 1.5 m/s
- Weight : 80kg – full 3D printed + Aluminium chassis
- Vision : Lidar+ Depth Cameras
How does Atlas work? Here is the video !
Some people in video comment are already thinking outside-the-box in terms of potential uses for such an agile, powerful machine :
“Who needs an Area 51 raid, when you have Boston Dynamics.” .
“The thing will wander the streets looking for a place to plug in because the battery pack won’t be big enough”
” They will Atlas’s Tesla supercharger one day. “
