‘Israel Aerospace Industries unveils route clearance robot’

‘SAHAR clears the way ahead of landmines, explosives and other obstacles’

‘SAHAR is a fully autonomous robotic system designed for the efficient performance of combat engineering missions. The system handles the process of route clearance including functions such as environmental terrain mapping, surveillance, removal of road blocks and disposal of IEDs. The system is designed to handle a variety of tasks, missions and threats autonomously.’

Now doesn’t that sound strikingly familiar? Doesn’t it seem very much like something we may all have come across – at least 81 times before?

Only the context was somewhat wider in application and more universal. – ‘ for those of us with better things to do.’
