Boston Dynamics didn’t only introduced the WildCat today. They also shared informations about Atlas and the LS3 aka Big Dog. Atlas - our beloved anthropomorphic robot - is now able to operate on rough terrain:

The video shows Atlas balancing as it walks on rocky terrain and when pushed from the side. The balance and control system places the feet and swings the arms and upper body to stay upright. The controller uses inertial, kinematic and load data from Atlas’s sensors. Atlas is being developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA’s M3 program. For more information visit
