BEAR is an all-terrain, search-and-rescue humanoid robot that can lift and
carry up to 500 pounds, yet can grasp fragile objects without damaging them.
The U.S. Army is currently testing a robot designed to locate, lift and
carry wounded soldiers out of harm?s way without risking additional lives.
With feedback from its onboard sensors and cameras, the Battlefield
Extraction- Assist Robot (BEAR) can be remotely controlled through the use
of a special M-4 rifle grip controller or by hand gestures using an
AnthroTronix iGlove motion glove. This quipment would allow a soldier to
direct BEAR to a wounded soldier and transport them to safety where they can
be assessed by a combat medic.
