According to a Korea Times article, two Korean ROBHAZ-DT3 robots are being shipped to Iraq to assist with military operations in the country, further reducing the risks to humans. The ROBHAZ-DT3 was developed by the KIST Intelligent Robotics Research Center. It runs Linux, has stereo vision, a manipulator arm, and can be teleoperated. The robot can travel at up to 12 kph and climb 45 degree slopes using multiple tank-like tracks. More photos and video of the robot in action are available at the ROBHAZ website.

Sorry guys but where did this design for an ROV come from?!?!

I hate to say this but in terms of EOD, this has to be the most ripped off design ever. In fact, you only have to look at the British Cyclops or the American Packbot they are all the same thing!

I'm sure the guy (or gal) that desinged the original robot back in the 1980's is a wee bit miffed by now...
