This robot may look like a cheetah, but it can only run at a speed of 10 miles per hour. Which is no way near the 120mph speed of real-life cheetahs. However, now with the ability to keep the running pace of a cheetah and being able to jump over obstacles, MIT’s robotic cheetah sees great improvements as it seems to work well even in the real grounds.

MIT’s robot cheetah will need more improvements if tit intends to compete against the Boston Dynamics’ four-legged WildCat robot, which can hit 16 mph on flat terrain and 28mph on the treadmill.
