US military develops the Rover: A Kinect-based video game for training dog handlers

A few days ago, we talked about how the US military forces use various video game applications, for both their training and weapon systems. And in the latest iteration of the applied technology, US military has developed a new video game called Rover that allows dog handlers to better comprehend their canine companion’s subtle behavioral patterns – which may potentially lead to more effective bomb detection scenarios.

The use of trained dogs for detection of explosives like IEDs has come back into focus for various military forces from around the world (though the practice was also prevalent during World War II). According to scientists from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), dogs are more successful in literally sniffing out the IEDs because of the bombs’ tendency to give out faint gas plumes that are far too tepid for mechanized detection systems. In other words, the dog nose’s more evolved sensitivity allows the animal to identify the plumes, which in turn presents the opportunity to locate the actual source of the usually hidden device.
