Humanoid robot Unitree H1 sets a world speed record [VIDEO]

The Chinese company Unitree Robotics has unveiled a humanoid robot that claims a new record. In a recently published video, a bipedal machine runs at speeds previously unattainable for such devices, and in addition demonstrates excellent grace while dancing.

The updated version of Unitree H1 Evolution V3.0 can run on a flat surface at a speed of 11.9 kilometers per hour, or 3.3 meters per second. This is enough to set a new world record for a full-size humanoid robot. The previous record belonged to the development of Cassie from Agility Robotics and was set in 2022 – it reached four meters per second, but since it is simply a structure of legs and a “head”, it could not be classified as a humanoid robot. 

Unitree H1 was first announced in December 2023. This is the first version of the humanoid robot in the Unitree Robotics line. Previously, the company created four-legged machines similar to dogs. The model is 180 cm high and weighs 47 kg and can carry a payload of up to 30 kg. The startup used hip, knee and ankle joints, as well as shoulder and elbow joints in the Unitree H1 design. 

The robot is equipped with a 360-degree Intel RealSense D435i camera and Livox MID360 lidar. Information from them is transmitted in real time to two Intel Core i7-1265U microprocessors. The robot can maintain balance not only while running, but also in extreme conditions. For example, when he is kicked and pushed.
