Hull Bug Robot: Smart Underwater Robot

The Hull BUG has four wheels, and attaches itself to the underside of ships using a negative pressure device that creates a vortex between the BUG and the hull. Much like a robotic vacuum cleaner, lawnmower or floor cleaner, the idea is that once it’s put in place, it can set about getting the job done without any outside control.

Talon Robot: Smart Military Robot

TALON robots have been in continuous, active military service since 2000 when they were successfully used in Bosnia for the safe movement and disposal of live grenades. TALON robots were used extensively at Ground Zero in search and recovery efforts after the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center. One of only two robot types actually used at Ground Zero (the others were the Inuktun robots), TALON™ robots were the only ones to last through the entire mission without requiring a major repair.
