Robot Roach Moves Super Fast on Tiny Fiberglass Legs

The X2-VelociRoACH moves fast by increasing the frequency of its strides while keeping stride length consistent. (Photo credit: UC Berkeley.)

A new robot called the X2-VelociRoACH is setting land-speed records for small, legged robots. The bot, which weighs in at 54 grams, can run up to 4.9 m/s with stride frequencies up to 45 Hz. Built by researchers at UC Berkeley’s Biomimetic Millisystems Lab, the X2 …

Researchers have developed a new way of analyzing walking, with the hope of improving robotic legs. Usually, researchers look at time as the all-important variable when trying to develop models for robotic legs. But a team at the University of Texas, Dallas, decided to focus on …
