Engineering firm Boston Dynamics unveiled a new robot for DARPA intended for search andrescue missions. It’s been in the works for a year and now the Wildcat robot makes its debut. This four-legged machine is designed to travelquickly over all types of terrain and can reach speeds of 16 mph on flat land. It’s considered the next generation of the cheetah-bot. Unlike its predecessor, Wildcat his its own power source, which may be why it hasn’t come close to cheetah-bot’s 28 mph record. Engineers also said the difference in speed might be due to gait or the simple fact that it’s a new robot that requires refinement.
