A dog-like robot created by a team at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology was dubbed the fastest quadrupedal robot by Guinness World Records.

The 99-lb (45-kg) HOUND robot ran 100 meters at an average speed of 11.26 mph (18.12 km/h), covering the distance in 19.87 seconds.

HOUND also can traverse grass, walk long distances, and climb a 22-degree slope.

Said Young-Ha Shin, HOUND's designer, "All of these movements were achieved with a single [motor] controller trained in simulation through reinforcement training."
