X-Box game console controller helps protect our troops

The first ever demonstration of a UK-US unmanned military vehicle convoy has taken place as part of the 'Last Mile' logistics to front-line troops.

Dstl together with the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development & Engineering Center (TARDEC) and the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development & Engineering Center (ARDEC) have demonstrated unmanned trucks formed into driverless convoys, unmanned aerial vehicles, and a robotic all-terrain 4x4 steered via a remote tele-operator.

As a result, the Coalition Assured Autonomous Resupply (CAAR) demonstration showed initial capability in unmanned tactical resupply incorporating a combined line-haul convoy, autonomous ‘last-mile’ ground & air capabilities.
