Researchers have been working on fast-paced strides for a robotic mini-cheetah – and their model-free reinforcement learning system broke the record for the fastest run recorded.

How the MIT mini-cheetah learns to run fast

A new control system, demonstrated using MIT’s robotic mini cheetah, enables four-legged robots to jump across uneven terrain in real-time.

One giant leap for the mini cheetah

The International Laboratory of Biomechatronics and Energy-Efficient Robotics has created a prototype of an energy-efficient hopping robot. The design is based on flexible joints and a series elastic actuator.

Scientists Create a Hopping Robot Using Morphological Computation

A new open-source torque-controlled legged robot system, with a low-cost and low-complexity actuator module at its core. It consists of a high-torque brushless DC motor and a low-gear-ratio transmission suitable for impedance and force control.

An Open Torque-Controlled Modular Robot Architecture for Legged Locomotion Research

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a privately endowed university in Cambridge Massachusetts, and has developed a new powerful, robust, inexpensive 9 kg (20 pounds) quadruped robot called the Mini Cheetah.

MIT Mini Cheetah: Four-legged Jumping Robot

The Ascento project is an invention by the Focus Project team composed of 8 Mechanical Engineering students and 1 Electrical Engineering student at ETH Zurich.

Ascento 2: Two-Wheeled Jumping Robot

SPARROW, a steam-powered robotic concept, could one day take giant leaps over some of the most hazardous terrains known (and unknown) in the solar system.

This Hopping Robot Could Explore the Solar System's Icy Moons

Researchers build a fast-moving jumping soft actuator

Next generation of soft robots inspired by a children's toy

CMU senior programs robots to surpass obstacles

Pushing Robotics Uphill

New control system may enable humanoid robots to do heavy lifting and other physically demanding tasks.

Two-legged robot mimics human balance while running and jumping

Imagine being trapped inside a collapsed building after a disaster, wondering if anybody will be brave enough to rescue you. Suddenly, a door bursts open, and standing in the shadows is a robot.

Human reflexes keep two-legged robot upright

Researchers developed tiny 10-gram robots that are inspired by ants: they can communicate with each other, assign roles among themselves and complete complex tasks together. These reconfigurable robots are simple in structure, yet they can jump and crawl to explore uneven surfaces

Robot-ants that can jump, communicate and work together

Robot’s lightweight, high-power design is the perfect platform to share and play, developers say.

Mini cheetah is the first four-legged robot to do a backflip

Meet Tribot, the three-legged origami robot designed and built by EPFL scientists. Tri- for three legs and -bot for robot, this super-light critter fits in the palm of your hand, is cheap to build, runs on less than one watt of power, and may one day be deployed in mass for search and rescue mission
