Anybody who has run competitively knows how having a visual target to compete against can be helpful. The PUMA BeatBot is a programmable, self-driving robot that can push runners of all levels. Users will just have to set the speed, put the robot on the track, and go.
The robot lets runners race their own or rival’s best results. BeatBot has 9 infrared sensors to follow a line on the track. The above video shows what BeatBot has to offer. What do you think? Are you impressed?[Source]
