This version of Atlas can walk over rough terrain without safety cables, it runs on battery power, it can squat and pick up boxes, open doors, if pushed violently with a hockey stick it maintains its balance. Perhaps its most incredible accomplishment, it can stand back up after falling down.

A new version of Atlas, designed to operate outdoors and inside buildings. It is specialized for mobile manipulation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated. It uses sensors in its body and legs to balance and LIDAR and stereo sensors in its head to avoid obstacles, assess the terrain, help with navigation and manipulate objects. This version of Atlas is about 5′ 9″ tall (about a head shorter than the DRC Atlas) and weighs 180 lbs.
