VECNA Robotics BEAR Robot Rescues People On The Battlefield Image00546
When someone is injured on the battlefield rescue can be a huge problem. Often the people trying to reach and retract the injured individual are exposed to combat and run the risk of becoming injured themselves. VECNA Robotics developed a unique robot named BEAR that features high mobility yet resembles a human being to a large extent. Their robot may be the solution to reduce secondary battlefield casualties. At the same time, it's definitely advancing the state of the art for modern military robotics.
