Robots are going to do many things for us. In the future, smart unmanned ground vehicles will perform surveillance and other important tasks without needing an operator. The Samsung Techwin STAR UGV happens to be a smart vehicle that detects its surrounding environment and finds the optimal path to its destination based on the data it has access to.
As you can see in the above video, the robot is quite versatile and features 4-wheel independent driving. Kevin Cunningham has more information about it on Vimeo.
