"The robot has a strong adaptability to the uncertainty of different road conditions, especially when the soles of the feet step on the edge of a step and it skids. It will quickly respond to these situations and regain balance."
 
After the robot was first released in February this year, it had attracted a lot of attention for its fast responses, stable posture, and accurate positioning.
