The Cougar20-H device can track both movement and motionless living objects at a distance.

California-based advanced electronics maker, TiaLinx, has introduced a mini-robot system with motion and breath detecting capabilities. The Cougar20-H can be remotely controlled from a distance and features a retractable arm that is connected to a radio frequency sensor array. It can penetrate even reinforced concrete walls to track movement and living, motionless objects, relaying this information to a laptop, thus providing more effective surveillance of a premises or a building.

The device, which was supported in part by the US Army, is expected to be used by several law enforcement and government agencies.
