(Algemeiner) An Israeli startup is promoting three new robots meant to aid soldiers in the field.
One of the unmanned ground vehicles built by Roboteam — the MTGR — is a lightweight tactical robot “designed for patrol missions and intelligence gathering, and can deal with bombs as well as help protect soldiers fighting in an urban environment. The second, an ultra-lightweight IRIS, can be thrown by hand nearly ten feet and serve as the “eyes and ears” of soldiers collecting intelligence in densely-populated areas. The final robot detailed in the report — the PROBOT — can conduct reconnaissance and patrol missions and also transport loads of up to around 1,650 pounds.
