Israeli companies Elbit, Foresight, and Rafael have come together to develop a vehicle for the IDF (Israel Defense Force). It has been declared that the IDF will start testing the vehicle, with no date specified. The vehicle itself uses the strong suits of all three companies.
Elbit specializes in military technologies with Foresight bringing expertise in autonomous vehicles. Rafael is a well-known weapons and defense technology developer. The collaboration has resulted in a Robotic Unmanned Combat Vehicle.
Auto Trendy’s take:
Although war is never the preferred solution, it is a reality. And in this reality, it is better to prevent as many casualties as possible. By removing the need for people's presence in the combat vehicle, some more lives can be saved. Hopefully the use of this vehicle will be limited but will still enable correct data collection to further advance self-driving vehicle technology.
