More Parkour Atlas

Atlas uses its whole body — legs, arms, torso — to perform a sequence of dynamic maneuvers that form a gymnastic routine. We created the maneuvers using new techniques that streamline the development process. First, an optimization algorithm transforms high-level descriptions of each maneuver into dynamically-feasible reference motions. 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%. For more information visit us at

  1. They are progressing well. I’ve been watching your videos for a long time now and was just wondering when you will post another video or update for atlas.

  2. Мне очень интересно кто на видео такого характера может поставить 4 тысячи дизлайков и по какой причине…..!!!!???

  3. Did you know that some youtubers made a cgi version of atlas but using a feedback suit so it wasn't the actual thing. But it did have hands.. maybe you guys could work on it
    Look for Corridor crew and look for a video about "Boston Dynamics" and maybe try looking into that!

  4. Yes, it's certainly amazing from a technical achievement point of view. But I cannot blame anyone here for comments about how this could turn against us either. With covid-19 and the global economic shutdown that followed, governments like Australia are now making it mandatory to download an App that knows your exact geographical location at all times, including how long you've been standing next to another individual. They are currently requesting to never turn your phone off or put it into flight mode. This 'request' will no doubt soon turn into a legal requirement. It won't take long for the initial care towards humanity to evolve into a control mechanism, and if you look at history, almost every technical achievement has. So while its amazing to see this 'fluidity' as some people have commented… its with wisdom that (we) are also watching with caution.
