      DARPA & Boston Dynamics have created Legged Squad Support System (LS3); designed to help soldiers carry their gear in the field in terrain where wheeled vehicles just won’t cut it. Basically, it’s like a robotic donkey, can carry 400 pounds of equipment & works autonomously, obeying simple spoken orders.

      DARPA's Legged Squad Support System (LS3) - to help soldiers carry equipment. (Looks vaguely disturbing...)

      The Legged Squad Support System (LS3) is a DARPA project for a legged robot which could function autonomously as a packhorse for a squad of soldiers. Like BigDog, its quadruped predecessor, the LS3 is ruggedized for military use, with the ability to operate in hot, cold, wet, and dirty environments.

      Boston Dynamics' LS3 robot which looks like a giant robot dog is designed to act as robotic porter of soldiers and marines. The LS3 is designed to carry up to 400 pounds of gear and enough fuel for missions to last for a 20 mile hike for 24 hours. The LS3 robot will automatically follow a soldier using its computer vision or travel to designated locations using GPS.

      DARPA’S LEGGED SQUAD SUPPORT SYSTEM (LS3) - autonomous robot will carry 400lbs of equipment, 20 miles in 24 hours without being refueled. How does that compare with a camel?

    • Hooligan Brothers

      The LS3 robot funded by DARPA is a faster, quieter version of Boston Dynamics' BigDog robot.
