Cheetah legged robot sets new world record in land-speed

The above video shows you the breaking records of Cheetah legged robot in land-speed. This new record holding robot is developed by the researchers of Boston Dynamics with the funds provided by DARPA’s Maximum Mobility and Manipulation program.

DARPA Cheetah robot is capable of running at a speed of up to 18.0 mph (miles per hour) on a treadmill. This achievement has smashed the previous record of 13.10 mph, and achieved the title of World’s Fastest Four-Legged Robot.

This galloping quadruped robot is powered by off-board hydraulics. As it is specifically made for military purposes, it certainly requires autonomous characteristics. Therefore, it is believed that this robot will be tested without tethered hydraulic tubes later in the year.

Overall, the research team feels that this achievement is a pretty good one and hoping for even more of it.
