Robots exploring smugglers tunnels
Robots using a sophisticated software are now exploring smugglers tunnels under the Arizona - Mexico border.
Idaho National Lab's Robotic Intelligence Kernel (RIK) is driving a couple of different robots in this new use. A companion story in Wired magazine says 30 tunnels have been discovered in Arizona just since 2006.
Popular Mechanics did a story last year about the primary geophysical techniques being used to discover the tunnels.
