(Hackaday) Boston Dynamics demonstrated new moves for its humanoid bipedal robot Atlas who was shown doing a bit of light parkour — jumping over a log and from box to box.
The video mentions that Atlas is using machine vision to analyze the position of markers on the obstacles. It can then plot the most efficient path over the obstructions. The onboard control system then takes over and uses Atlas’ limbs and torso for balance and momentum as the robot jumps up and over everything in its path.
