New Delhi:

Motiv Robotics has unveiled its incredible new RoboMantis – a four-legged, wheeled robot that can take on everything from first response missions to farming. 

RoboMantis is a hybrid mobility system which can walk on its four legs or drive on wheels to save energy over long distances or tackle challenging terrains.

The creators say it's the 'most capable robot on the market' and can be used for a wide array of tasks.

With its arms stretched into the air, RoboMantis is much taller than a human and can operate semi-autonomously.

“It isn’t meant for high speeds – but, it could ‘theoretically’ hit 25-30 miles per hour,” Motiv’s President & CEO Chris Thayer told

“It has a hybrid mobility system, so it’s both wheeled and capable of quadrupedal walking,’ Thayer said.

“Its arms have 6-degrees of freedom, and ‘it can walk if it needs to,’ Thayer explained. This will happen in unprepared terrain, or climbing stairs, that kind of thing,” Thayer told
