Boston Dynamics builds Atlas humanoid robot in perfect balance

Boston Dynamics earlier this year had a project to go further toward design closer to human anatomy, even they have made impressive developments in the latest genes. The robotics company is deploying an Atlas project where humanoid robots jump from block to block and in perfect balance rotates 360 degrees in the air.

Boston Dynamics says Atlas is a ranks of sophisticated humanoid robots that have a control system to coordinate arm movements, torso and legs to achieve full body gesture manipulation to expand range and workspace.

Atlas's ability to balance while performing tasks enables working in large volumes while occupying only a small footprint. Atlas hardware takes advantage of 3D printing to save weight and space, producing exceptional compact robots with a high power-to-weight ratio and huge workspace.





Stereo sight, range sensing and other sensors give Atlas the ability to manipulate objects in the environment and travel in rough terrain. The atlas keeps the balance when jostling or pushing and can get up when it's done.

Boston Dynamics was founded by Marc Raibert in 1992 as a design engineering and robotics company for the US military. On December 13, 2013, the company was acquired by Alphabet's Google X at an unknown price. On June 8, 2017, the company was purchased by SoftBank Group for an undisclosed amount.
