Security and defense applications are also currently under exploration with the Multipurpose Mobile Manipulator. For this task, the robot attempts to track a red book and fire toy darts in its general direction. At its current state, the robot has quite a bit of fine-tuning to go through before it is ready to enter any real or imagined battlefields. Further testing including but not limited to foam rocket launchers and fully automatic bubble blasters is underway.
