LOS ANGELES — Robots come in all shapes and sizes and now there’s one that can walk, run and even kick a ball.

A team of researchers at the Robotics and Mechanisms Laboratory at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering developed a full-sized humanoid robot called ARTEMIS, or Advanced Robotic Technology for Enhanced Mobility and Improved Stability.

It’s electric-powered, and according to the team, it is the world’s fastest walking robot with a pace of 2.1 meters per second.

Here’s a closer look at ARTEMIS’ capabilities as the team prepares it to compete in an international competition this summer in France called RoboCup 2023, where it will play soccer against other robots.
