In the past few years, we have seen plenty of interesting combat robots that can make life easier for soldiers on the battlefield. Safran Electronics & Defense is the latest company working on developing land robots for armed forces. This FURIOUS project involves developing robots capable of carrying loads for infantry soldiers and exploring buildings.
As the company explains:
The DGA’s FURIOUS project will involve the development of three robot demonstrators, of different sizes and with different mission profiles for a variety of environments (for example, exploring buildings, carrying loads for infantry soldiers, etc.). These demonstrators will be deployed by an infantry platoon and tested in different configurations. The largest of the three robots will be the eRider autonomous vehicle developed by Safran Electronics & Defense in partnership with Valeo and PSA.
