The U.S. military-funded robot dog program has developed an electronic canine which will help soldiers hauling their gear over rugged terrain. This dog is known as a Legged Squad Support System or LS3 and is a sort of an intelligent pack mule that will not react when shots are fired.The robot dogs have also been trained to follow the leader.They can walk up to 3 miles per hour over rocky terrain and transition to a 5-mile-per-hour jog on a flat surface. Eventually, top speed will be around 7 miles per hour on flat surfaces. The robot dogs will even right themselves should they stumble, without even a whimper.This invention is useful to soldiers who need to cover ground inaccessible to their Humvees. Let’s just hope these dogs don’t turn on their owners.
