All new Cheetah Robot, running at the speed of 18 mph!


Cheetah is a new robot being developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA’s Maximum Mobility and Manipulation program. Last week Cheetah set a new land speed record for legged robots, galloping 18 mph on the treadmill. This version of the Cheetah is a lab prototype with offboard power and a boom that planarizes its motion. Testing on a free-running version of the Cheetah that will run ‘unplugged’ in the field starts later this year.
