Atlas is an anthropomorphic robot designed to operate on rough terrain. The video shows Atlas balancing as it walks on rocky terrain and when pushed from the side. The balance and control system places the feet and swings the arms and upper body to stay upright. The controller uses inertial, kinematic and load data from Atlas's sensors.
bassman5911: The MH-53J Pave Low III heavy-lift helicopter is the largest, most powerful and technologically advanced helicopter in the Air Force inventory. The terrain-following and terrain-avoidance radar, forward-looking infrared sensor, inertial navigation system with global positioning system, along with a projected map display enable the crew to follow terrain contours and avoid obstacles, making low-level penetration possible.

Notch: Wearable Movement Capture Sensors and Apparel. #Activity tracker module uses "IMUs (Inertial Measurement Units) to track and capture your movements either continuously or on-demand with record / pause / stop functions." Companion app. Modules work independently, but many can be worn simultaneously for movement profiles. Sends haptic notifications via tiny vibration motors. In development. #fitness
Toyota i-Road electric one-seater brilliant in the turns | Graceful, fluid, athletic; this little electric...thing rides on three wheels, two in the front and one at the rear. Using a remarkable turning steering mechanism, the i-Road uses a gyroscope and inertial sensors, combined with data on speed and steering angle, to determine how far to lean the i-Road.
