Boston Dynamics’ new Atlas robot cannot be pushed around (Video)
and step out the front door opens. The but then, walking on uneven terrain and snow and maneuvering around trees several times to correct their balance is seen.
New and advanced robot “are designed to operate outdoors and inside buildings,” Boston Dynamics is a description of the video posted on YouTube wrote. “It is special for mobile manipulation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically driven. It uses sensors in its head and its body and legs to balance and stereo LIDAR sensors to avoid obstacles, terrain assessment, navigation with the help and manipulate objects. ”
Indeed, video bending down to 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms) and its fuselage pivot boxes to place each package on a shelf Atlas goes to show. In another example, a hockey stick, a human handler uses to push off balance Atlas. Robot stumbles backwards (but catches himself) before regaining its balance. Then, push it down behind an employee Atlas. Curled-up robot (lying flat on the face of your robot) is able to push himself – all without the help of a human torso to your right and then at his feet- before pushing his “hand” and “knees,” the first or a tether.
Some commenters on the YouTube video with a hockey stick to push the robot, some saying they felt sad for the robot, and even some men calling a bully, suggesting perhaps the man with a smile expressed displeasure over, he will be blamed for any robot rebellion.
“The man who kicks the upcoming robot human robot wars [sic] will be completely responsible,” Alper wrote ALT.
Another commentator, genealogy wrote: “Man, I really feel bad for robots.”
“When they pushed it to someone else was very sad,” wrote Chris Loreto.
These commenters robots, especially to heal people are not alone in attributing emotions.
The researchers found that when people are being harmed when they snuggled tasks a robot or a flesh and blood human being to react in a similar way. Participants in a study negative emotions they felt when they saw a man hit or drop a small dinosaur robot, and their skin conductance also showed that they were less distressed, “said Bot abuse.” When the volunteers saw a robot being embraced as their brain activity was observed when human-human affection; Nevertheless, the brain activity of human versus human-robot-human abuse was stronger for violence.
“We think that, in general, human robot stimuli as stimuli elicit the same emotional processing,” the German University of Duisburg Essen Rosenthal- Astrid van der Putten, who led the study said. Research in London in 2013, was presented at the International Communication Association Conference.
Last summer, Boston Dynamics DARPA Robotics Challenge Finals, a competition hosted by the US military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency upgraded to the latest robotic. The most important changes Atlas’ power supply and the hydraulic pump, which helps the robot stand, walk and do other tasks were around.
Boston Dynamics, which is owned by Google, said the new version of the Atlas robot is now about 5 feet 9 inches (1.7 meters) tall, standing a head above the DARPA Robotics Challenge used in the final Atlas about less, and 180 pounds (82 kg) weighs.
