DARPA, the military research group, and Boston Dynamics have released another video of AlphaDog, or as they lovingly call it the Legged Squad Support System (LS3). The robotic assistant is being developed to help dismounted troops by carrying gear. In the latest video the bot can be seen following a soldier using a control pad device.
According to Wired’s Danger Room the robot can carry up to 400 pounds and has a range of 20 miles.
Pretty cool stuff, and it doesn’t even need a good boy treat!
