WALTHAM, Mass. (KXAN) - WildCat is a four-legged robot being developed to run fast on all types of terrain.
So far, it can run at about 16 mph on flat terrain using bounding and galloping gaits.
This is WildCat's best performance to date.
Boston Dynamics is developing the robotic runner with funding from Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's M3 program.
A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
