The Robot Apocalypse Is Nigh: Boston Dynamics Releases New Videos

By Mundilfury | redice.tv

Boston Dynamics has released a new video showing its bipedal robot, Atlas, jogging though a field.  Atlas ambulates autonomously at a steady, running pace and even jumps over a log.

This was accompanied by another video that depicts the company’s quadruped machine, SpotMini, negotiating a route through an office space and lab facility. The description for this video reads as follows:

SpotMini autonomously navigates a specified route through an office and lab facility. Before the test, the robot is manually driven through the space so it can build a map of the space using visual data from cameras mounted on the front, back and sides of the robot. During the autonomous run, SpotMini uses data from the cameras to localize itself in the map and to detect and avoid obstacles. Once the operator presses 'GO' at the beginning of the video, the robot is on its own. Total walk time for this route is just over 6 minutes.
