Being the leading provider of human simulation tools, solutions and software, Boston Dynamics is an engineering company founded in 1992. It aims at building dynamic software and robots for human simulation.
Developed by Boston Dynamics, Atlas is a humanoid robot that has been specifically designed to deal with outdoor, rough terrain. The high-mobility robot is capable of walking bipedally while using its upper limbs for lifting and carrying.
Cheetah is the world’s fastest legged robot. Developed by Boston Dynamics, the robot can run as fast as 29 mph, a land speed record that no other robot has ever met. Cheetah’s current version runs in the center of a high-speed treadmill in the lab.
Boston Dynamics has specifically designed the LittleDog robot for doing research on locomotion. Scientists at major institutions use LittleDog for probing the basic relationships among dynamic control, motor learning, environmental perception and rough-terrain…
Developed by Boston Dynamics, LS3, also known as Legged Squad Support Systems, is a modern robot that can go anywhere. As soldiers and marines go on foot, the rough-terrain robots carry the heavy loads. They can automatically follow their leaders by using…
Designed by Boston Dynamics, PETMAN is a modern robot that specializes in testing chemical protection clothing. The anthropomorphic robot is particularly known for its natural agile movements that help the robot simulate how protective clothing is stressed…
Developed by Boston Dynamics, RHex is known for its high mobility. The six-legged robot can not only climb in rock fields, sand, mud, railroad tracks, vegetation and telephone poles but it is also capable of climbing up stairways and slopes.
Developed by Boston Dynamics, RiSE is a climbing robot that is capable of climbing vertical terrain like trees, walls as well as fences.
MIT Biomimetic Robotics Laboratory researchers have developed a special computer process for bounding, which enables the Cheetah v. 2 to run faster and untethered
Dr. Guero has come up with a bipedal robot built to ride a custom made bicycle. It is capable of riding the bike without falling, just like a real human being does when balancing and riding a bicycle
BigDog is a robot that is capable of walking across rubble, climbing hiking trails, walking in water and snow as well as carrying loads of up to 340 lbs. BigDog can run as fast as 4 mph and climb slopes up to thirty-five degrees.
