As much as robotics has potential for various aspects of consumer life, combat robots like the 'Dogo' from Israel General Robotics are looking to expand the technology further into security protocols.
Completely remote-controlled, the 'Dogo' robot offers controllers a 360-degree view of a space and can help to support human militants or be used as a standalone unit.
The 'Dogo' robot is capable of being operated for between two and five hours, and wields a nine millimeter gun to fire at enemies should the need arise. The combat robots are also outfitted with pepper spray that can be used on aggressive individuals up to ten meters away.
The 'Dogo' is designed for use by SWAT teams, infantry missions and counter-terrorism operations.
