Hold onto your medals, Simone Biles. On Tuesday, Boston Dynamics published a brand-new video of its robotic, Atlas, flaunting some gymnastic abilities. Atlas, the nearly 5-foot robotic, finishes a series of somersaults, leaps, twists and a handstand prior to sticking the landing. On its website, Boston Dynamics qualities Atlas’ series of movement to the robotic’s 28 hydraulic joints.
“Then Atlas tracks the motions using a model predictive controller that smoothly blends from one maneuver to the next,” Boston Dynamics stated in the video description. “Using this approach, we developed the routine significantly faster than previous Atlas routines, with a performance success rate of about 80%.”
Boston Dynamics didn’t instantly react to an ask for remark.
Of course, Atlas isn’t the only. The for early adopters, has actually been including task after excellent task to its resume. The little robotic pet dog can with its good friends, and .
