Robot-cheetah: Ferrari among the robots - VIDEO PDF Print E-mail

A group of scientists at the Massachusetts Technology Institute (ITI), perfecting his creation - a robot cheetah, introduced in the car are the same sensors that are used to control drones, satellites and even ballistic missiles.

Embody the elegance of the fastest wild cat in the world, the robot cheetah Cheetah can reach speeds up to 20 km / h, jump to a height of about two feet, and landed gracefully, continue to gallop. Battery charge of the mechanical predator will last approximately 15 minutes, reports AP.

Development of scientists at MIT, created from scratch, in the past five years has evolved considerably: steps cheetah became virtually noiseless movements - graceful little animal climbed out of the lab and learned to run without requiring a "leash" quickly and deftly, even on the lawn.


During the last modernization of mechanical cats, they have developed a special algorithm that is implemented in the assembly of batteries and electric motors. Cheetah weighs about as much as his living prototype.

"This is a Ferrari among the robots: we have all the most precious thing you can take, and brought it to perfection. This is the only way to achieve this speed, "- said the agency professor of mechanical engineering Sanbae Kim.

Sensors located on the extremities of the robot, constantly measure the angle stop his feet, after which the information collected is sent to the onboard computer that processes the data received inertial control unit, which is used in the management of drones and ballistic missiles.

The key to an algorithm that allows the robot to move the limb as it makes a big cat lies in a certain application of force in the moment when the foot touches the ground to maintain the set speed, making it look like a sprinter. Simply put, the greater should be the desired speed, the greater must be the power of promoting the robot forward.

Kim and his colleagues have developed an algorithm that determines the force with which the foot should touch the ground in a short period of each cycle. This force must be sufficient to push up, allowing to overcome the force of gravity in order to keep the momentum moving forward.
