Bomb disposal robot. Radio-controlled bomb disposal robot vehicle shows how it can pass over obstacles in its path using its "caterpillar" tracks. Robots, being more expendable than humans, are often used to identify suspect packages and take any necessary action. This robot is fitted with a video camera on its top. The operator (not seen here) uses the camera at a safe distance to view the bomb and the surrounding area. The robot can then be used to disable the bomb.
