    Good morning all,

    It's an article plus video.

    Whereas an emergency evacuation, for example, meant getting out rapidly with pre-packed gear such as binoculars, ... these small sensor robots are becoming the best source of info ... not yet, but soon, for the individual. Binoculars might not be going away but the robot as an advance piece of survival equipment is arriving.

    Note article's "can be fitted with sensors to detect hazardous materials".

    I'm guessing it could work both ways; "a mortar round ... and disable it." The event could be vice-versa.

    Was impressed reading: "can operate ... and in tandem with one another".

    Good morning Brownbear,

    It's definitely correct and required analysis to trace the flir robots to WWII German army explosives delivery.

    Even the current drones traces back to the WWII USN using the "Interstate TDR" with a Grumman TBF Avenger.

    Not too much is really "purely" new under the Sun.

    Flir robots are "merely" the technical / technological (not sure of correct word) enhancements of rudimentary, pre-existing tech stuff.
