ATLAS: All Terrain Legged Ambulatory System

ATLAS is a full scale testbed for a statically stable walking machine. Designed to carry large payloads over unstructured terrain, ATLAS has several key innovations that address issues that have plagued previous walking machines. 

The patented powertrain reduces power consumption, increases vehicle payload capacity, and increases reliability when compared to previous examples, such as the Ohio State ASV and Plustech Timberjack.
