DARPA has a new project in the works. They are developing an autonomous robot that would assist troops in danger. While there are bots like the Dragon Runner already in place, they have yet to create one with visual intelligence, the ability to interpret what it sees.

Twelve research teams from universities and tech schools are working on the problem, but it may be a while before they have their answer.
