“Big Dog” is a Google-owned robotic quadruped that’s taking its first outside steps in Hawaii. The US Military gave him his first day out in a live military trial conducted by the Marine Corps.
“Big Dog” is a nickname for the Legged Squad Support System, or LS3 for short. Its purpose is to carry the soldiers’ loads in the field, freeing overencumbered footmen from the incredibly heavy backpacks and gear they have to carry.
This robo-pooch can run up to 20 miles before needing to refuel while sharing the 100-plus pound load normally lugged around by the soldiers. It was developed and manufactured by robotics company Boston Dynamics, a Google subsidiary. The project aimed to make a highly mobile, semi-autonomous, ambulatory robot to tail soldiers through rough or otherwise difficult terrain. It reportedly took three years to develop.
