Scientists Make Creepy Robot

picture-116Researchers at Seoul National University in Korea are trying to make a robot that can creep or be sneaky.

In the image here, the blue dot is the good guy, like a security guard  and the red dot is the bad guy, like an intruder.  The researchers have created an algorithm that allows the blue dot to intercept the red dot by using a path that is sneaky and not direct.

The algorithm takes into account robot size, size of objects it can hide behind and speed of the intruder.

Wow, they are creating a robot that can hide on us.

Now that really is creepy!
