Atlas Humanoid Robot Works At A Construction Site


It’s time for Atlas to pick up a new set of skills and get hands on. In this video, the humanoid robot manipulates the world around it: Atlas interacts with objects and modifies the course to reach its goal—pushing the limits of locomotion, sensing, and athleticism.

What does it take for a robot to run, flip, vault, and leap like an athlete? Perception and adaptability are key for Atlas to perform these high-energy behaviors.In this new video, Atlas not only lifts a tool bag, but also a large wooden plank, climbs stairs, jumps between levels, and pushes a large wooden box off the platform without losing balance.

This newest iteration of the robot has actual grippers. They’re simple clamp-style hands with a wrist and a single moving finger, but that’s good enough for picking things up.


The humanoid has compact mobile hydraulic systems and a custom battery. It also has 28 joints, is 1.5 m tall, and weighs 89 kg. Atlas can walk at a speed of 2.5 m/s, Boston Dynamics says the technology behind the new control capabilities is actually more difficult than extreme acrobatics.
