Herder Bot.

 Australian researchers have designed a “Robotic Rover,” designed to keep cows in line like a cattle dog. It’s still in the planning phase, but Camden cows have responded well to the prototype. Rover uses 2D and 3D sensors, as well as global positioning technology, to herd cows where they need to go. According to The Land, one of the Robotic Rover’s most interesting features is its pace — it’s designed to move at cow-speed, rather than forcing cows to rush around. But you probably won’t own one of these anytime soon: The price tag is a cool $1 million Australian dollars.
