Robot Dogs Help US Soldiers – level 3

17-09-2020 07:00

Futuristic robot dogs manufactured by Ghost Robotics have joined the US military.

The US Air Force is testing the electronic canines to defend its bases, and the canines have become a part of the US military´s ´Advanced Battle Management System´ that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and data analysis to detect and counter threats. According to Ghost Robotics, the robots are able to execute a wide range of tasks in any terrain or environment, and they also carry sensors and radio equipment. The company also claims that the devices are unstoppable.

Exact details about the specific technologies that are tested on the robot dogs are unsurprisingly scarce, given the sensitive nature of their role.

Difficult words: canine (a dog), detect and counter (to know if something is there and toreact to it), scarce (rare and not easy to find or get).
