Robots learn to backflip: body bulky hands and feet are flexible According to foreign media reports, the development of the Boston Dynamics humanoid robot Atlas now after the flip, do not forget, it can be a bulky humanoid robot.

If humankind is already a bit successful in this area, that's Atlas. In the past few years, not only did it learn to backflip, but it has become more portable and smarter and less prone to fall. It can climb up even if it really falls. Autonomous robot planetary gear DC motor, so that the robot more flexible.

Boston-powered Atlas humanoid robot even more cool learned backflips

 

Specifically, humanoid robots should not be able to make such difficult moves. Be aware that it is very difficult to develop a biped robot that can move effectively, let alone start a backflip program. The beauty of quadrupeds is that they are easy to maintain their platform when resting and moving, but biped robots like Atlas can only balance the bulky upper body with two legs. So you can argue that roboticists might as well spend more time researching non-humanoid robots so that they can avoid the limitations that humanoid robots face.

However, Atlas and other bionic robots like Cassie, another robot that can walk like a bird, have a reason to do what they are. We live in a world built for mankind, so in many cases people want to see a robot that works like a human being.

 For example, if you have to explore a contaminated nuclear facility, you definitely want a robot that can climb stairs and ladders and open the valve. Therefore, robotic experts have to develop humanoid robots. If humankind is already a bit successful in this area, that's Atlas. In the past few years, not only did it learn to backflip, but it has become more portable and smarter and less prone to fall. It can climb up even if it really falls.

Therefore, it is not hard to imagine that Atlas will someday be able to enter where humankind can not stand. Especially now that Boston Dynamics has become part of SoftBank, a large Japanese company that will certainly step up R & D investment. While it's crazy to flip back a robot like Atlas, the road to humanoid robot development is still full of thorns. Robot control, battery life, and robot balance are hard insurmountable major problems. But who knows, maybe one day, the humanoid robot will come into our lives, or at least appear in the Olympic Games arena.
