Google’s Robot Soldier ‘Fights’ With U.S. Marines

Google's battlefield robot is tested as it 'fights' with U.S. marines

US Marines have been instructed to put Google’s new ‘robot soldier’ named Spot to the test by fighting with it in a war exercise. 

Google X’s battlefield robot was tested in a battle with US Marines in Virginia where it checked for enemies ahead of the marines using its LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) sensor. reports:

“We want to continue to experiment with quadruped technology and find ways that this can be employed to enhance the Marine Corps warfighting capabilties,” said Captain James Pineiro, branch head for Marine Corps Warfighting Lab., in a press statement, reported Value Walk.

Boston Dynamics, purchased by Google in 2013, first showcased quadrupedal robot Spot on 9 February.

The robot was built with the intention of assisting soldiers on the battlefield to carry equipment, as well as for search and rescue and accessing disaster zones.
