Robot systems that include sky-spies and rocket-firing aircraft have moved the science fiction of yesterday into the reality of warfare today. Robot Warriors examines the use of robots in battle as well as in other dangerous, life-threatening jobs. Also explored are machines with more peaceful jobs, such as robots that stand duty as police guards, bomb disposal crews, and anti-terrorist sentries.
