More Parkour Atlas
New Ballet dancers or gymnasts?
Atlas uses its whole body -- legs, arms, torso -- to perform a sequence of dynamic maneuvers that form a gymnastic routine. Boston Dynamics created the maneuvers using new techniques that streamline the development process.
Then Atlas tracks the motions using a model predictive controller that smoothly blends from one maneuver to the next. Using this approach, we developed the routine significantly faster than previous Atlas routines, with a performance success rate of about 80%
