    Sorry couldn't think of a cute title for this one.

    Dustcart is a pilot program for a robot vehicle that goes door to door collecting rubbish.

    That's kind of a dull application but is this the first autonomous vehicle designed to operate in the real world?

    Combine them with the EATR technology! "Bring out yer dead, bring out yer dead!" Or put a plasma vaporizer in there too for non-organic waste, & you've got an all-in-one mobile waste disposal unit.

    This seems like a good idea to me, on the surface... but I can just imagine the vandalism that would take place on the things, and the high cost to repair...

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Didn't the company who owns that EATR tech say "it can't eat flesh"?
