Video: Next Generation Atlas Robot Won’t Be Pushed Around by Humans


Over the years, we’ve watched in awe as Boston Dynamics has refined the design of its humanoid Atlas robot, and a new version is impressing once again, reports ENGADGETS.

Last year the Alphabet-owned group showed off a battery-powered version of the robot, and now the “next generation” model remains wireless, but is smaller. At 5 feet 9 inches and about 180 pounds, it compares to a predecessor that was six feet tall and weighed 330 pounds a couple of years ago.

As you can see in the video below, it’s adept both indoors and in the wild, with sensors in the body and legs for balance, plus LIDAR and stereo sensors in its head for navigation and avoidance.

    Creators for creating them before asking their permission as well as for
    Poor working conditions
