Robot to guard Israel’s borders
Israel is a specific state that virtually surrounded by enemies and is in a constant state of conflict. Therefore, there arises a lot of military technology, and the latest, which is testing there is a robot guarding the borders.
The robot is so basically revamped half-truck Ford F-350, which is equipped with a computer system provided by the Israeli company Elbit Systems. These vehicles, which at the moment are unarmed, have a number of cameras that allow operators to voyeur image in 360 degrees.
For now it’s just the operator controls the machine, but in a few months it is to change-it has to obtain autonomy. Underlined, however, is that when finally it has weaponry. It has to be a machine gun-is this weapon will always be supported by man.
Initially, the machines have watch the border with the Gaza Strip, but later hit also on the other-they completely replace the older, semi-autonomous machines named Guardium (an excerpt from the one you can see in the picture).
