Robot makes speed record

London, March 6 (IANS) A four-legged robot known as the Cheetah has set a new land speed record for legged robots by running at 29 kmph on a treadmill in Massachusetts.

The Cheetah, being developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from the US military's Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency, is part of a programme aimed at achieving theoretical and experimental advances in the science of robotics, The Telegraph reported Tuesday.

The Cheetah broke a land speed record for legged robots that was set in 1989 when a two-legged robot at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology ran at a speed of just over 21 kmph, the Boston Dynamics said in a statement.

Alfred Rizzi, chief robotics scientist at Boston Dynamics, said the goal is ultimately to get the Cheetah running much faster and in an outdoor environment.
