MIT engineers showed the third version of the robot Cheetah. The four-legged machine learned to move around and to overcome obstacles blindly, without using eyesight or a previously created map of the surrounding space. The path search algorithm is similar to that used by a person moving in an unknown place in total darkness.
A similar way of moving the robot is necessary for situations where sensors can not be used or their accuracy is limited. MIT specialists will tell you about new features of Cheetah 3 in October at a specialized conference.
It will also be about new components of the robot, which received a greater degree of freedom.
