Fascinating footage shows a robot using autonomous planning to precisely move along a treacherous path of narrow cinder blocks.
Researchers trained the 165-pound ‘humanoid robot’ to walk across narrow terrain by using human-like control, perception and planning algorithms.
The video shows the robot, called Atlas, carefully moving across a balance beam using body control created using LIDAR.
This system uses a pulsed laser to measure the distance between objects and this is procssed by the machine so it can step correctly on the narrow terrain.
