Boston Dynamics' robots are conquering the indoors and outdoors

Boston Dynamics' robots are conquering the indoors and outdoors

Boston Dynamics has added a few new videos to its YouTube channel, showcasing the latest impressive feats of the biped Atlas and quadruped SpotMini robots.

People are anxious that a Terminator-style robot apocalypse may be around the corner, after a new video emerged of a robot jogging casually across grass.

The video shows Atlas running outside, uphill, through some short brush, and even stopping and jumping over a log.

Boston Dynamics was bought from Google's parent company, Alphabet, by Japanese firm SoftBank in August previous year, but it looks as though developments are surging ahead. The robot sees its environment using LiDAR and stereo vision so it's capable of manipulating objects and traveling over rough terrain all on its own.

"Atlas' control system coordinates motions of the arms, torso and legs to achieve whole-body mobile manipulation, greatly expanding its reach and workspace", the company says of the two-legged robot.

Atlas is an advanced robot created to look like a human - it has arms, legs and 28 joints and is able to mimic the movement of humans. Once the robot has mapped the area, it uses the cameras mounted on its front, back and sides to navigate autonomously.

SpotMini navigates indoors and outdoors, completing the route in just over six minutes.

The second video features the company's Spotmini robot dog. Once the operator presses "go", the robot takes off unassisted.
