The robot uses light detection and a radar system known as LIDAR, which uses lasers to map terrain. A route-planning algorithm allows the cheetah to “see” — not unlike how many autonomous cars work.

This system allows the cheetah to scan the world ahead and determine the best way to clear an obstacle. If reading about robot cheetahs and lasers in the same sentence doesn’t strike fear in your heart, then you don’t know fear.
