The latest version of the Pentagon’s robot Cheetah was able to run faster than a man, and not any man – faster than athletes Bolt Useini!
Cheetah Robot is a fast-running quadruped developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA.

During a recent test enhanced prototype Cheetah achieved a speed of 45.54 kilometers per hour (28.3 mph) without losing stability. The fastest man in the world, Usein Bolt, reached a top speed of 44.71 kilometers per hour (27.8 mph) 2009th when setting the world record.

The latest prototype is still powered from an external source using overhead cables, but Boston Dynamics, the company that the Pentagon is working on the development of advanced robots, believes the field test version of the robot in early 2013. year.

“The fact that we have achieved 45 km/h (28 mph) on the treadmill was a challenge and a great achievement, for which we congratulate our team of robotics,” said Dr Alfred Rizzi, technical project leader Cheetah.

“Our goal is to create robots that can move freely in the open field and running quickly. Exactly the right version of the open ground we call Wildcat, which should be ready for testing early next year, said Rizzi.
