Submission + - Israel patrols its borders with 10 autonomous off-road vehicles (geek.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Since 2008 the Israeli Ministry of Defense has been operating up to 10 Guardian UGV autonomous off-road vehicles to patrol its borders. They look like armor plated jeeps, but are packed with tech allowing them to function independent of an operator.

Typically a Guardian UGV will be programmed to follow a set route continuously monitoring the surrounding area as it goes. If it spots something out of the ordinary it phones home and awaits further instructions. Alternatively, two guys with laptops can dial in and control the UGV directly. One has control of the vehicle movement while the other can position cameras and monitor an area using the built-in radar system.
