DARPA's Atlas robot will be taught to save you if the sky falls (video)

DARPA and Boston Dynamics appear bent on engineering the robotic revolution, and it is whereas sporting a suspicious smile that they introduce us to Atlas, their newest humanoid creation. Inorganically advanced from Petman and an intermediate prototype, Atlas will compete in DARPA’s Robotics Problem (DRC) Trials in December, the place will probably be challenged with “duties just like what may be required in a catastrophe response state of affairs.” The seven groups that made it by way of the Digital Robotics Problem stage, held in a simulated surroundings, will therapeutic massage their code into the actual 6′ 2″ robotic, which sports activities a number of sensors and 28 “hydraulically actuated joints.” Additionally competing for a spot within the 2014 DRC finals are six “Monitor A” groups, together with a few crews from NASA, which’ve constructed their very own monstrous spawn. Head previous the break for Atlas’ video debut, in addition to an introduction to the Monitor A groups and their contributions to Judgement Day.
