Atlas is a research platform designed to push the limits of whole-body mobility.
Atlas has one of the world’s most compact mobile hydraulic systems. A custom battery, valves, and a compact hydraulic power unit enable Atlas to deliver high power to any of its 28 hydraulic joints for impressive feats of mobility.
Atlas’s advanced control system enables highly diverse and agile locomotion, while algorithms reason through complex dynamic interactions involving the whole body and environment to plan movements.
Atlas uses 3D printed parts to give it the strength-to-weight ratio necessary for leaps and somersaults.

Atlas Gets A Grip
It’s time for Atlas to pick up a new set of skills and get hands on. In this video, the humanoid robot manipulates the world around it.
Inside The Lab: Taking Atlas From Sim To Scaffold
How does Atlas recognize and interact with objects? Why is manipulation important for the future of robotics? Join our team in the lab to learn more.
Leaps, Bounds, and Backflips
By training Atlas to maneuver its way through complex parkour courses, Boston Dynamics engineers develop new movements inspired by human behaviors and push the humanoid robot to its limits.
Flipping the Script with Atlas
What does it take for a robot to run, flip, vault, and leap like an athlete? Perception and adaptability are key for Atlas to perform these high-energy behaviors.
