(StraitsTimes) Singapore’s soldiers could see robots fighting alongside them in the future, in the form of unmanned ground vehicles armed with machine guns. Micro unmanned aerial drones may provide troops with greater situational awareness in the skies.
Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen announced that a robotics laboratory will be set up next month in the DSO National Laboratories to design, build and test these robots. Dr Ng said that currently, soldiers with the 6th Singapore Infantry Regiment are experimenting with unmanned aerial and ground vehicles to perform missions.
