The robots, being developed by India's Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), will have a "very high level of intelligence" to enable them to tell friend from foe, DRDO chief Avinash Chander says.
"We are going to work for robotic soldiers," Chander told PTI in an interview. "We are going to look for very high level of intelligence in it than what we are talking today... It is a new program and a number of labs are already working in a big way on robotics."
The newly-appointed DRDO chief said the project is one of his agency's "priority areas," as "unmanned warfare in land and air is the future of warfare".
