The Army could one day use ground robots similar to, but larger than, this anti-IED vehicle to retrieve injured troops. - 

The Army is looking at ways to make more use of robots and other existing technologies to improve medical response on the battlefield, in ways that would not only help injured soldiers but also protect combat medics.
