South Korea’s Robot Gun Turret

    CCTV (China Central Television, the english version) has reported on the Korean robotic turret system that can detect and engage targets with or without a human operator.

    The media has made a big deal about this system but American and European turret systems could easily run software to automatically detect and engage targets. They don’t because it isn’t a very good idea.
