Now that robots have proven they can clear IEDs, tour the then-radioactive Fukushima nuclear power plant, and observe endangered tortoises, the next natural step for these overachievers is investigating dangerous drug tunnels. Wired has a nifty report on how camera-equipped robots are helping out the folks over at San Diego’s Border Tunnel Task Force–a group made up of the San Diego Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Protection and the Drug Enforcement Agency–explore complex and perhaps dangerous drug-smuggling tunnels.
