The Robot Dog Spot of Boston Dynamics was traveling with recruits of the French Army. He was one of six robots that were being tested. In the end, however, Spot went off the electricity.The French army used the four-legged friend in exercises. The aim is to explore application possibilities. First and foremost, Spot exploring tasks took over in various scenarios. Due to empty batteries, the soldiers had to carry him at the end of a longer exercise from the "combat area", .
military school tests deployment scenarios
Four students of the military academy led the applied research exercise to analyze the use of ground robots. They played three scenarios: an offensive action with taking a crossroads, a defensive action in day and one night as well as the simulation of a city battle. The actions initially led the soldiers without robotic help and then. Some representatives of the robot manufacturers also participated. Therobots secure better, but action takes longer at the moment.
as a preliminary conclusion, the training participants said, the application of the robots need more time, but bring more security with them. For project manager Oberleutnant Julien, the interest is mainly "for the fight in closed environments". "We are calm when the robot has cleared up before," he said. On the other hand, they have also experienced the limited autonomy as a spot of the juice. Consider a training phase than necessary. However, they fall off shortly because the students already dominated the joystick handling.
