Remember Big Dog? Well there is a new walking robot king in town. Cornell’s Ranger Robot has just broken the record for distance for a bipedal robot. It took over 65 thousand steps before the battery died!
Thanks for the tip Paul.
“It took 65,185 steps for Cornell’s 4-legged bipedal robot to walk 108.5 laps on Barton Hall’s 1/8-mile indoor track, setting a new world record for non-stop distance walked by an untethered legged robot – more than a half a marathon. The previous legged robot distance record was 12.8 miles, held by BigDog, Boston Dynamics’ robust and capable quadraped robot. “
