Boston Dynamics builds advanced robots with remarkable behavior: mobility, agility, dexterity and speed. Boston Dynamics is perhaps best known for its ATLAS humanoid robot, which is tether-free and designed to operate outdoors and inside buildings, and has incredible balance. ATLAS 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 and help with navigation. This version of Atlas is about 5’ 9” tall (about a head shorter than the DRC Atlas) and weighs 180 lbs.
Organizations worldwide, from DARPA, the US Army, Navy and Marine Corps to Sony Corporation turn to Boston Dynamics for advice and for help creating the most advanced robots on Earth.
Boston Dynamics, Inc. markets its products through resellers. The company was founded in 1992 and is based in Waltham, Massachusetts.
