Thousands of 30 lb. backpack-able remote-controlled or “tele-operated” robots with infrared and electro-optical cameras are already clearing caves, building and other potential enemy locations in Iraq and Afghanistan right now. But two new robots are at the front of the autonomous revolution: the MULE and the SMSS.
