Boston Dynamics has published a new video where they demonstrated amazing abilities of their humanoid robot called Atlas.
Atlas is a humanoid robot, a result of more than decade in robotics research at Boston Dynamics. It can walk even over non-flat and snow-covered terrains and move objects up to 4,5 kilograms in weight. The completely new technology is the ability to adapt to unexpected circumstances while moving.
Atlas can balance itself after being pushed or hit with an object and it can even stand up after being brought down to the ground. Atlas can also drive a vehicle, open the door, use a drill machine and similar tasks.
Boston Dynamics is owned by Google, i.e. Alphabet. The company is active in robotics research since 1992.
