Submitted by schwit1
schwit1 writes: The U.S. Marine Corps. a robotic mule known as the Legged Squad Support System, or LS3, is taking part in military exercises in Hawaii. LS3 is designed to carry 400 pounds and travel 20 miles without refueling. The robot is operated by a Marine with a sensor strapped to his or her foot. LS3 follows the Marine using computer vision.

LS3 seeks to demonstrate that a highly mobile, semi-autonomous legged robot can follow squad members through rugged terrain and interact with troops in a natural way, similar to a trained animal and its handler.
