Boston Dynamics’ Next Generation Atlas Humanoid Robot

Written by


The future is here. The next-generation ATLAS robot has arrived and it’s quieter, smarter and much steadier on its feet.

A new version of Atlas, designed to operate outdoors and inside buildings. It is specialized for mobile manipulation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated. It uses sensors in its body and legs to balance and LIDAR and stereo sensors in its head to avoid obstacles, assess the terrain, help with navigation and manipulate objects. This version of Atlas is about 5′ 9″ tall (about a head shorter than the DRC Atlas) and weighs 180 lbs.
