Dynamic Legged Robots
Marc Raibert

A new generation of high-performance robots is leaving the laboratory and entering the world. They operate in offices, homes and the field, where ordinary vehicles can not go. They use sensors to see the world around them in order to navigate, interact and understand. Their agility, dexterity, autonomy and intelligence are evolving in ways that promise to free us from the tasks that no human should have to perform. The presentation will give a status report on the work Boston Dynamics is doing to help develop advanced mobile manipulation robots.
