The US Army has shown off augmented reality goggles for combat dogs, designed to let them receive orders at a distance.
Inside the goggles, the dogs can see a visual indicator that they can be trained to follow, directing them to a specific spot.
The handler, meanwhile, can see what the dog sees through a remote video feed.
“AR will be used to provide dogs with commands and cues; it’s not for the dog to interact with it like a human does,” said Dr Stephen Lee, a senior scientist with the Army Research Laboratory (ARL).
