In February, 2011, DARPA first announced its next-generation robot called the Cheetah; it was heralded as the world’s fastest legged robot. In fact, its speed of 28.3 mph was faster than the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt. However, its speed was reached in a laboratory setting, tethered on a treadmill for stability.
MIT researchers are now announcing that they have solved the riddle which kept the Cheetah on its leash – the secret lies in a new computer algorithm that not only enables untethered running, but jumping as well.
