UPI – A robot developed at Oregon State University (OSU) broke a Guinness World Record by running 100 metres on two legs in less than a half-minute.
Oregon State University’s College of Engineering announced that the robot, developed at the school and produced by OSU spin-off company Agility Robotics, broke the Guinness World Record for fastest 100 metres by a bipedal robot.
The robot, dubbed Cassie, took to the track at the school’s Whyte Track and Field Center and ran the 100 metres in 24.73 seconds.
Cassie previously managed to run a five-kilometre course in 2021 in just over 53 minutes.
The development team said Cassie is the first bipedal robot to use machine learning to control a running gait on outdoor terrain.
