A new version of Atlas, designed to operate outdoors and inside buildings. It is specialized for mobile manipulation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated. It uses sensors in its body and legs to balance and LIDAR and stereo sensors in its head to avoid obstacles, assess the terrain, help with navigation and manipulate objects. This version of Atlas is about 5′ 9″ tall (about a head shorter than the DRC Atlas) and weighs 180 lbs.

One of the most advanced and expensive robots in existence has been taught how to do housework.
Researchers at Florida’s Institute for Human and Machine Cognition have programmed an Atlas android to operate a vacuum cleaner and pick up rubbish.

The machine – which cost several million dollars – was built by Google’s Boston Dynamics division, and is designed to let independent roboticists try out their code.

IHMC previously used the machine to enter the Pentagon’s Darpa Robotics Challenge, which pitted teams from across the globe against each other to develop droids capable of helping in natural disasters.

And what if you couldn’t tell the difference between man and machine? 

“Yangyang”, a humanoid robot with a variety of realistic expressions wowed visitors at the Beijing’s Global Mobile Internet Conference on Thursday (April 30).

The robot is modeled on one of the researchers who helped develop the technology, and can blink, smile, shake hands, and even hug her human doppelganger.

“This is the first one inside China. At present this robot has the most features, she has 43 degrees of freedom across her whole body, most of them are concentrated on the face, because of this, her expressions can be very varied,” said Song.
