Meet ARTEMIS, the World’s Fastest-Walking Humanoid Robot
One of the event’s highlights was the first live stage demonstration of ARTEMIS, the world’s fastest-walking humanoid robot, developed by UCLA researchers. This versatile robot can walk on any terrain using custom-designed actuators that mimic biological muscles, unlike most robots with rigid, position-controlled actuators. ARTEMIS stands at 4 feet, 8 inches and weighs 85 pounds. It can run and jump on rough, unstable surfaces with a speed of 2.1 m/s. The developers’ goal is for the autonomous soccer playing robot team to defeat a human world championship team by 2050.
Dr Dennis Hong, the visionary behind this groundbreaking innovation, explained that the key behind ARTEMIS’ excellent balance while walking on uneven terrain and its ability to run was the ability to get both feet off the ground while in motion, a revolutionary feat for robots.
