Atlas has been described by its creator Boston Dynamics as “the world’s most dynamic humanoid robot” and pushed the robotics research platform from its first introduction in 2013. Originally measuring about 2 meters long (over 6 feet) and weighing about 150 kilograms (330 pounds), the atlas was created for the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DRPA) to use the company’s robotics challenge. At the time, Atlas was one of the most advanced humanoid robots ever built. Nearly a decade later, bilateral powerhouses have perpetuated our unusual valley fantasies.
Atlas is back in 2019, this time as a liquid 10-point gymnast, comfortably stretched out his arms, bald, and driven with ease and compassion as he settles down a bit on the path to glory. Although this little split-kick is “Weave” At the end though Nowadays, the Atlas is made of 3D-printed parts weighing only 80 kg (1 just 6 pounds) and has a “power-to-weight ratio” that allows it to jump and somersault like an Olympian with a speed of 1.5 meters (5 feet) per second. Atlas also dynamic AF.
In a new introduction to mobility driving, the makers of Atlas first used an optimization algorithm to convert high-level descriptions of movement into the speed that were “dynamic-potential” for robots. Atlas then tracked the motion using a model predictive controller that allowed each movement to blend seamlessly into the next. Boston Dynamics says the approach could result in a “significantly faster” routine than before with an 80 percent success rate.
