OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) - The United States military is testing some robotic vehicles made by Oshkosh Corp. that can be used to carry supplies into combat zones.
Oshkosh has spent millions of dollars developing the unmanned trucks, which engineer John Beck says they are still a few years from completion. Recent testing has taken place at Eglin Air Force Base in northwest Florida. A small convoy of robotic trucks moved through an off-road course that included wooded areas, sand and water crossings.
Beck tells the Journal Sentinel the robotic vehicles have come a long way in development in recent years. Improved technology allows the trucks to sense road hazards in 3D, rather than in two dimensions.
The military expects the unmanned vehicles will be useful in Iraq and Afghanistan where roadside bombs have killed thousands of troops.
