On July 5, 2019, the Florida Institute of Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC) released the results of the autonomous walking program of the latest biped robot. The experimental body Boston Atlas can navigate autonomously and completely realize the robot's autonomous walking through different terrains! The robot can handle a variety of complex terrain, including narrow bridges and rugged ups and downs.

In the video, the researchers used the Carnegie Automated Multi-Sensor SI "brain" sensor to scan a point data cloud that generates an environment, and then transform this environment data into multiple planes.

In this way, the huge data collected by the sensor can be visualized into a more compact form, and then these planes are transformed into independent polygonal objects. Based on this environment map, all possible paths of the robot from the start point to the end point can be calculated. .

With the planning algorithm robot, you can also pass through narrow passages sideways.

When the path is blocked, the robot can also re-plan the path to the end point.
 
IHMC claims that the robot's autonomous walking success rate narrow bridge is 50%, bumpy ground 90% flat ground up to 100%
