a new humanoid beats Massachusetts campaign and its silhouette is not completely new. Boston Dynamics has just unveiled the next generation of its robot Atlas, who had participated in the Darpa Robotics Challenge by 2015.
Much more compact than his elder, this robot is clearly more agile than him. Seen thus leaving the traditional lobby of the roboticists pushing the outer door, and then scampering in a snowy forest without losing the balance despite a clearly terrain. The robot then shows his abilities by placing packages in a rack but also respond to a changing environment. While an operator pushed the robot, is dropping its carton, Atlas NG resumed its balance and will recover its carton.
While the army did not following the experimentation of his quadruped robot LS3, Boston Dynamics find an outlet in logistics for its Atlas?
