R.J. Linton’s Worcester Polytechnic Institute team is one of seven competing in a $2 million contest to expand Atlas’s ability to solve problems.
Worcester Polytechnic Institute students work on an Atlas robot, which was delivered as part of a Pentagon project.
An engineer from Boston Dynamics, which built Atlas, inspects the robot.
Another local company, iRobot, designed the hand for the robot.
The two-legged Atlas is designed for rescue, not combat.
