Atlas and SpotMini More Agile Than Ever, Running and Climbing Stairs

By: | May 18th, 2018

Atlas, brother of SpotMini


I’ve officially run out of good things to say about Boston Dynamics’ Atlas and SpotMini robots.

They simply continue to impress. Now, Atlas is running rather effortlessly while SpotMini seems to have no issues maneuvering around buildings and climbing up and down stairs.

Atlas even jumps over a log in the latest clip, although its form is not the most athletic I’ve ever seen.

SpotMini is now slowly but surely learning to avoid obstacles by utilizing cameras, its next big step in becoming fully autonomous.
