Boston Dynamics, a former Google (googl) unit that's these days part of Japanese mega-conglomerate SoftBank (sftby), released a new video on Thursday that showed Atlas going for a jog. This was also the subject of the company's last two videos which saw the robot kicked around, as well as a display of an arm attachment.
The robot is able to move around on rough terrain and jump over objects using stereo vision, range sensing and other sensors.
"Getting some air, Atlas?" the Waltham-based robotics company titled the video.
The engineers at Boston Dynamics devote much time to the improvement of the finished robots.
Good boy? We certainly hope so. Spotmini now comes with autonomous navigation mode which means the robot can now walk on its own in a specified area, without requiring manual driving.
Boston Dynamics says the robot is manually driven through the space to build a map using visual data from front-facing camera.
Once SpotMini familiarizes itself with the building's layout, it's able to get to the programmed destination all by itself, without hitting any walls or obstacles.
