A reptile-shaped robot that can separate into independent functional units.

The Israeli Military is testing a new generation of robotic snake that is made from independent segments each with its own sensors, power source and processor. When together, the snake robot is a highly maneuverable object that can move through difficult terrain and scan the place from all angles, but where it really improves upon the previous version is that its segments that can detach themselves from the parent body and perform independent missions.

In a urban warfare situation, this snake robot can stealthily sneak inside buildings, scan its interiors and once it has detected its target, it can simply detach one of its segments packed with timed-explosives and leave it behind.

The snake robot has been developed by the BioRobotics and BioMechanics Lab (BRML) and will eventually be inducted into the Israel Defense Forces.
