Generally snipers use boring non-moving targets for practice. They need robotic moving targets to really stay on their game. And so the Australian Defense Force and Marathon Robotics took a bunch of two-wheeled RMP 200 Segway robots, placed hoodie wearing dummies on them, armored the bottoms, and then programmed them to wander around randomly.
When the sniper picks off his target, the remaining robots all scatter automatically. Now that’s a fun game. Some days it’s good to be a sniper.
