What Is The Future Of Military Robots? 

Are you interested in war and military forces? Do you usually imagine how wars will seem if more robots get into the field? In this article, we will tell you about the future of military robots that are produced by several companies such as Yaskawa which produces the Yaskawa amplifier. 

Types of robots

Recent years have witnessed advances in robotic technologies. And the robot industry, in the modern era, consists of programmed machines that can carry out several operations, using a slight modification in the stock of data, which are complex to use, and capable of self-adaptation, based on the surrounding conditions.

The use of the robot led to progress in all fields, whether civil or military, and intelligent generations emerged from it, able to deal with changing situations, by sensing those situations and reprogramming their data. 

Military robots

Robots are created to track the terrain and choose alternative routes. Rather, some of them are capable of carrying supplies of weapons and ammunition, clearing the land of mines, and carrying out guard duties.

Work is still underway to develop it, to be able to touch, smell, hear and taste, and everything that improves its performance increases its speed and ability to accomplish its tasks. 

The United States of America wants to develop a robot that fights on the front lines, climbs the barriers, swims under water, and monitors other military robots. It also recruited a robot, spherical in shape, that rolls on the ground, rests on three telescopic legs, and sticks its head out of a hole in it, exploring the surrounding area to discover the enemy forces. The heat and motion sensors, which are supplied with it, initiate the weapons inside it and shoot them through another hatch towards enemies.

Robots have also been developed to suit nature, dive into the oceans and destroy sea mines. Some scientists are also trying to develop a soldier in the form of a small robot that can crawl, jump and fly over minefields, in the desert, and on beaches, to spy on the enemy, remove mines, and discover chemical weapons. 

A microaerobic robot the size of a fly has been produced. The Pentagon has allocated $60 million to develop it. And this fly can carry cameras to monitor enemy soldiers or hunt and kill them by putting poison in their necks.

A crowd of microwave robots armed with plastic explosives can land on critical parts of a bridge, for example, and detonate them sequentially, destroying it all with a small number of explosives, the effectiveness of a cruise missile.

The military robot is characterized by its technological capabilities and development, but its prices are still high. Some research has focused on the robot carrying out several tasks, including feeding the handicapped and picking up the phone on its behalf, and receiving its commands through a tape wrapped around the chin, which converts the commands into signals that the robot picks up.

A robot can jump and penetrate enemy places and bypass walls and barriers 6 meters high. It stores hundreds of small robots and launches them into enemy areas, where they spout a gas that hypnotizes its soldiers and affects their breathing and eyesight. And this is one of the means of modern warfare. 

The future of robots

There is no doubt that the acceleration of scientific progress, technological development, biology, and nanotechnology, will contribute to the development of this industry in various fields. There may come a day when we will witness the presence of intelligent robot soldiers fighting the wars of others.

For example, computer scientists, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, with the help of Siemens, were able to produce a robot that interacts with human voice and facial emotions, in preparation for another product that has social intelligence and learns things, as humans learn.
