At the first Robotics Rodeo, hosted this week by the U.S. Army and the Fort Hood III Corps in Texas, war machines replaced bulls and horses. Soldiers and civilian contractors used the opportunity, starting on Wednesday, to inspect a lineup of robots that could potentially find a place on the battlefield. "If we're not fielding, we're failing; it's all about saving soldiers' lives," said Lt. Gen. Rick Lynch, Fort Hood commander and co-host of the event. "It's not about technology demonstrations, not about how much money you can garner from the U.S. government, it's all about saving soldiers' lives."
