A Robotic Cheetah created by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and Boston Dynamics runs at a  speed of 28.3 mph. That’s faster than the Olympic runner Usain Bolt’s time of 27.7 mph. This speed of cheetah was determined in the treadmill running unlike Usian Bolt in natural running.

Researchers are working on this robotic cheetah for more improvements , the speed at which the Agency is making adjustments and improving the cheetah is impressive, as only five months ago, the cheetah had a record speed of 18mph.The M3 (Maximum Mobility and Manipulation) program at DARPA has been specifically working on designing robots which  greatly enhance the mobility and manipulation of robots.
