Cheetah robot breaks own land speed record by 10.3 mph

The world’s fastest robot has broken its own land speed record by 10.3mph.

In March this year, The Engineer reported that DARPA’s Cheetah robot had set a new speed record of 18mph.

DARPA reported yesterday that Cheetah had smashed its own record to reach 28.3mph, giving the defence research agency further insights into robotic locomotion.
