Puma BeatBot

You can now race against Usain Bolt with Puma's BeatBot

Puma have introduced the BeatBot, a programmable, self-driving, line-following robot that gives training runners a target to race against.

Utilising infrared sensors to follow the lines on a track and a front-facing camera, the BeatBot counts the revolution of its wheels to track its speed and distance.

Puma states that it then uses that data to make more than 100 adjustments per second while racing.
