South Korea's Intelligent Surveillance and Guard Robot is a robotic
sentry gun designed to detect and if necessary fire upon intruders
along the border with North Korea.
The Intelligent Surveillance and Guard Robot is the first fully robotic
system to offer surveillance, tracking, firing and voice recognition
built into the same device.
This robotic sentry gun is able to use voice recognition to check on
answers to the "Who goes there?" query.
If the intruder is unable to provide the necessary access code when
at a distance of ten meters, the Intelligent Surveillance and Guard
Robot can either sound an alarm, fire rubber bullets or make use
of its K-3 machine gun.
Prototypes will be tested this year; deployment along the border
could take place as early as late 2007.
