)-- The U.S. Army is planning on testing the first prototypes of the Robotic Combat Vehicle by 2021.
'"The Army has realized that robotics is going to be critical for our success in the future," Col. William T. Nuckols, director of the newly formed Training and Doctrine Command Project Office (TRADOC) for Maneuver Robotics and Autonomous Systems, told Military.com recently. "The new robotic prototypes will have all the equipment necessary to make them semi-autonomous, so they can maneuver for short distances and engage targets," Nuckols said. [Military.com].
Colonel Nuckol's has confirmed the participation of TRADOC at Military Robotics and Autonomous systems conference, taking place in London on 25th and 26th April 2018.
