At Fort Benning, Georgia, the Army recently invited top robotics vendors for a week of demonstrations.

Robotics companies like Northrup-Grumman, 5D Robotics, iRobot, and HDT Robotics showed off their latest technology. Not only did the machines fire weapons, but they could carry heavy loads and follow the Soldiers around the terrain without needing a driver.

Many of these devices are wireless for greatest functionality, but the battlefield cybersecurity issues are an unsolved problem.
