Scientists at the Oregon State University have designed a two-legged robot that aims to be the world’s fastest robot. Called ATRIAS, it is modeled after the fastest and most agile bipedal runners in nature: birds. ATRIAS, which stands for ‘Assume The Robot Is A Sphere,’ is currently in training. Scientists at the Dynamic Robotics Laboratory of the Oregon State University said that, compared to other robots, ATRIAS runs faster, works better, and is much more efficient.

Jonathan Hurst, an associate professor at the Oregon State University, said when it starts walking, not even running, ATRIAS will become the fastest robot in the world. The robot is capable of moving fast even on rough surfaces, thanks to the lightweight carbon-fiber mechanism used to create its leg...
