Oregon State University announced on September 27 that Cassie, a bipedal robot developed by the Dynamic Robot Lab of the School of Engineering, set a Guinness World Record for an outdoor 100-meter run for a bipedal robot with a time of 24.73 seconds.
According to the Guinness World Records website, Cassie started on May 11 this year in a standing state and ran the above good results. It did not fall on the way and also ended up standing after the sprint.
Cassie is the first bipedal robot to use machine learning to control the gait of running outdoors. Its ” knee joint ” bends backwards like an ostrich, making movements without relying on camera or external sensor data.
Since its inception in 2017, the R&D team has been exploring machine learning solutions. Cassie set a record in 2021 for an outdoor 5km run in 53 minutes after a single charge, running across a variety of surfaces along the way.
