2 Mins Read
Institute for Human & Machine Cognition (IHMC) researchers in Florida recently conducted a test with the 165-pound humanoid robot, known as “Atlas”, where it was tasked to walk across narrow terrain by using human-like control, perception and planning algorithms. It managed to walk across a balance beam using body control created using LIDAR, which pulsed a laser beam to measure the distance between objects. All of this data was then processed by the machine so it can step correctly on the narrow terrain. Read more for a selection of fascinating images from around the web.
