Autonomous WildCat robot runs 16 mph


A weaponized WildCat robot would be truly scary even if, in its current incarnation, a well-placed rifle shot would probably disable it. Future versions will no doubt be armored. Still, it’s an amazing piece of technology.

WildCat is a four-legged robot being developed to run fast on all types of terrain. So far WildCat has run at about 16 mph on flat terrain using bounding and galloping gaits. The video shows WildCat’s best performance so far. WildCat is being developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA’s M3 program. For more information about WIldCat visit our website at
