U.S. Military Robots Of The Future: Visual Tour
April 25, 2012 09:10 AM Meet robots that fight fires, climb ladders, search for bombs, and race across the battlefield. The technological singularity is near, say military strategists.
Humanoid Robot: Petman
Boston Dynamics describes Petman as "the first anthropomorphic robot that moves dynamically like a real person." It can walk upright or crawl on all fours, and was demonstrated doing push-ups. Petman already has a big brother by the name of Atlas. It's possible that humanoid robots used in DARPA's Grand Challenge will be based on Petman or CHARLi.
