Comparing robots to each other is not an easy task given all the different design and control concepts. Furthermore a speed record, in my humble opinion, accounts more for human showmanship than for a scientific insight. Nevertheless, what robots actually run and at what speeds make frequently good lab discussions, and therefore I present a small ranking of humanoid robots and their reported speeds. Only human-size robots (based on my rather subjective judgement) are considered, the list will be updated.
|Robot||Gait||reported speed (m/s)||resources|
|Petman / ATLAS||walking||1.95||Video|
|Honda E4 (1991!)||walking||1.30||Honda robot history|
|Hubo 2+||walking |
