The world's first robot marathon is under way in western Japan, with five two-legged participants racing on an indoor track. The race kicked off Thursday with the 30-centimetre-tall, battery-charged robots competing around a 100-metre racetrack. They will have to cover 42 km. Japanese robot maker and event organiser Vstone Co. says the “Robo Mara Full” race in Osaka will demonstrate the machines' durability and manoeuvrability.
Vstone robots took an early lead, while two entrants by Osaka University of Engineering teams got off to a shaky start. The race is expected to last through Sunday. — AP
