Boston Dynamics’ Atlas robot performs Parkour tricks with ease
12 October 2018
In its latest video line-up, Boston Dynamics’ humanoid robot ‘Atlas’ jumps over logs and leaps up steps without breaking its pace (or a sweat)!
The control software uses the whole body, including legs, arms and torso, to gather the energy and strength for jumping over the log and leaping up the steps (40cm in height).
Atlas uses computer vision to locate itself using visible marker on the approach to hit the log accurately.
