|Iran unveils new range of military, rescue and minesweeping robots|
Iranian researchers at the Islamic Azad University, Yazd Branch, Central Iran, have designed and developed three types of military, rescue and minesweeping robots to boost control over borders. "The rescue robot has been designed to help injured troopers in war zones and provide first aid to them, said Hadi Zare, one of the researchers of the team, the Iranian students' news agency reported.
Hadi Zare added the robot is equipped with sensor, camera and microphone facilitating connection with the injured from commanding headquarters.
He said the minesweeping robot removes and detects mines and easily passes through obstacles on its way if it is any.
The iranian military robot is similar to an armored vehicle on which weapons can be mounted. It can also pass through obstacles. The robot can identify any moving individual through image processing.
It can communicate with the individual through a microphone and shoot if it receives no response.
