Atlas, The fearsome robot
Boston Dynamics has excelled at designing machines that can walk, run and even jump like humans. They can stand their ground even in difficult terrains. Atlas is the latest humanoid from Boston Dynamics. It runs on battery power and weighs 75 kg. With hydraulic actuation, Atlas’s control system coordinates motions of the arms, torso and legs and keeps its balance when jostled or pushed and can even get up if it tips over.
