Litter robots, a type of robotic trash can used by the military, are being used in the United States to help feed troops and their families, and to clean up battlefields and debris.
The Litter Robot is a prototype of the Litterbots, a robotic trash receptacle that can house up to 30,000 items including diapers, pillows, toys, cleaning supplies, water and trash.
The device can be mounted on a trailer or towed by a truck to a location where the soldiers or their families can drop off the items and return them to their barracks.
The Litter robot will have an arm that can lift up to four liters of water at a time, or six liters for a small amount of trash.
Each Litterbot has a capacity of up to 50 liters.
