iRobot PackBots Ready for Action

Posted 14 Jan 2003 at 14:47 UTC by steve Share This

A new CNN article covers the latest on the iRobot PackBots. The PackBots have incorporated a lot of improvements from lessons learned clearing caves in Afghanistan. The robots may be used heavily in future wars, not just for clearing terrorist caves and hideouts but as scouts in urban combat areas and other high-risk missions. For more info on the PackBot, check out the iRobot website. (there's a 3D tour of the robot on this page but it doesn't work correctly in most current browsers or on most operating systems)
