Carnegie Mellon Gets $14.4M to Build Robo-Tank 213

coondoggie passed us a NetworkWorld article, this one discussing new developments in the state of robotic warfare.

Part of the new award budget is also slated to help the university prove that autonomous ground vehicles are feasible in future combat situations."
