BEAR (Battlefield Extraction-Assist Robot)

http://www.tatrc.org/website_robotics/bear.html

Another example of a very useful robot.

“Vecna Technologies Inc. is building and testing a highly agile and powerful mobile robot capable of lifting and carrying an injured human out of harm’s way using a gyro balance system mounted on two wheeled (tracked) base. The gyro system and tracked base are intended to give the robot a high degree of mobility over rough, uneven terrain and dynamic balancing behavior for high-speed mobility when speed is needed.”
