Aussies develop robots on Segways for firing practiceby Dhiram Shah
The armed forces are more into the future than we thought. Well, if that doesn’t sound convincing enough then how about the presence of Segways moving around the streets, disguised as normal people. This was done by Australian based company, Marathon Robotics. They can act as dummy hostages or civilians, thus helping armed forces practice better to deal in situations that involve co-lateral damage.
It’s quite stunning to know that with security systems with this level of sophistication are quite plainly kept into the picture for a brighter, safer tomorrow.
