The system can be used to convert conventional tactical vehicles into hybrid (manned/unmanned) robotic platforms. Manned vehicles equipped with Smover can be used as unmanned reconnaissance or weapons platform, for example, in minefield breaching or recovering vehicles under fire. Equipped with Smover, a lead element of a convoy can be driven remotely without being visibly distinctive from the rest of the convoy vehicles. The vehicle can be remotely controlled or use autarkic drives, moving along predetermined routes, negotiating obstacles by automatic recognition etc. Smover technology was implemented in the 8×8 multi-mission Trobot (Tactical robot, shown above), which can be used as a load carrier, weapon platform or recce vehicle. Other applications range from NBC sensor to a field MEDEVAC platform and more.
