Robots have come a long way in the past few years. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, in collaboration with researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), has contributed several times to this. Recently, Ghost Robotics came to the fore as it prepared a robotic dog meant for the US government.
The latest model is equipped with the Vision 60 code. The robotic dog weighs 45.4 kg and can reach a top speed of 45.5 kg. In total, she can “run” up to 12.6 kilometers. Bot automation is ensured by Nvidia’s Xavier platform. The robot dog can carry loads of up to nine kilograms and is equipped with all modern monitoring technologies, including smart cameras.
The robot dog will be tested for the purpose of protecting the US border. The advantage of using motorized dogs for border protection is that they are excellent in all terrains and environments. This is not surprising, they are equipped with a large number of sensors and radio. However, before robot dogs become a constant element of state border protection, they will, of course, have to pass many tests in this field.
