System detects, warns and fires (machine gun and 40mm grenade launcher).
See a story on the test here and a profile of the system here.
"The SGR-A1 robot is developed jointly by the Korea University and Samsung Techwin Co. The SGR-A1 has a CCD and an infra-red camera allowing it to detect and track targets at ranges of up to 4Km during the day and 2Km during nighttime. The SGR-A1 robot uses a low-lightcamera and pattern recognition software to distinguish humans from animals or other objects.
At one time Samsung claimed on their website that the SRG-A1 'has the purpose of protecting the major military base and national strategic site. The system is designed to replace human-oriented guards, overcoming their limitation of discontinuous guarding mission due to its severe weather condition or fatigue, so that the perfect guarding operation is guaranteed.'
'The Intelligent Surveillance and Guard Robot is unique because it is the first of its kind to have surveillance, tracking, firing and voice-recognition systems built into a single unit,' the deputy minister said. The robot, which weighs 117 kilograms and stands 1.2 meters high, can also provide suppressive fire with a K-3 light machine gun.
The system uses its voice recognition to identify approaching persons. If the intruder is unable to provide the necessary access code when at a distance of ten meters, the Samsung SGR-A1 can either sound an alarm, fire rubber bullets or make use of its Daewoo K3 5,56mm machine gun."
