Massachusetts Institute of Technology engineers have developed a four-legged robot that resembles a cheetah. The robot has been in development for five years before being revealed this year. Some of the cool features the robotic animal has include running as fast as a person, jumping hurdles and maintaining a speed of 5 mph. According to team leader Sangbae Kim, “many other robots can move faster on wheels, or maybe jump higher, but they can’t do it on their own.” The MIT team will be in the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Robotics Challenge Finals in June and present the findings from this latest round of tests at a robotics conference in July.
