Toyota Humanoid Robot Can Run Faster Than Most Humans

Posted Jul 31, 2009

In the video demo above, Toyota showcases one of their latest robots. The robot is in the form of a human and has the ability to run at 7km/hr (4.35MPH). This is even faster than Honda’s ASIMO humanoid robot, which can run at 6km/hr (3.72MPH).

Toyota’s robot prototype is 130cm tall and weighs 110 lbs. The Toyota robot’s legs have 7 degrees of freedom and uses real-time methods for balance control. The robot takes a step every 340 milliseconds. If you’re not a fan of watching robots getting pushed around, don’t watch the video.
