There are two, maybe three, readily available robots in the field now acting as personal assistants to military and security personnel. Some small to be carried like a briefcase, some larger. I understand they are expensive; but cheap if they can save one single life.
In your opinion, what characteristics, programming options, hardware, interfaces and mobility would the ideal military robot have? Considering all the new 'stuff' coming onto the market, could we not build a robot very specific to end user need much like we can buy a car by looking at colors, combinations, options on a computer at the dealership and push "Buy" and have it delivered within a week? Call it "Build to Order" type robot. Like some industrial computers that can be bought that way - by just plugging in the option and at the factory it's whipped together and shipped UPS the next morning for one day delivery.
So... what would be on your list?
