I have been reading about autonomous robots used in the battlefield.

We are now getting used to drones ( UAVs ) but, in the close future seems that UGV are gonna be the new trend ( although they first saw action in WW2, for example the teletanks used by Russia when they tried to invade Finland in the 1939 ).

Personally I find that really creepy, although it may not matter much what try to kill you, but if it's not even a human, and its manned in a safe distance, and you never know if it could turn against their own side...

What do you think about the possible spread of UGV in the battlegrounds? What do you know about them? Do you think are morally right?

People might have thought that when we first used horses for war for example (unlikely) but everything new is going to get attention. It is the future so we are just going to have to get used to it

I,ve seen them in movies but if we ever get ready for battle UGVs they'll be nothing like what you saw in the movies.First of all i still don't know their "place" in battle,i mean they can't replace tanks.Too many open weak points and (if bipedal) risk of losing ballance and fall after a strong hit.I see them most likely to be some kind of support unit.

I've watched about DARPA projects in youtube. It's amazing how far they reached considering that probably latest achievements are not shown to the public.
