Technology really works!
It is very difficult to get the dog to obey your commands, but the Japanese scientists seem to have solved this problem.
In the experiment, researchers from Tohoku University shows how a trained dog can go over rough terrain, using spots of light as points on the map. Light is directed so that the spot was in front of the dog or on either side of it. The operator can control the movement of the dog with a controller.
Tests on three poodles showed that the operator can send the dog to different places and get there video in real-time.
