PETMAN is an anthropomorphic robot developed by Boston Dynamics for testing special clothing used by the US Army. It’s nearly six feet tall, weighs 180 pounds, and is able to simulate sweating, respiring and changes in body temperature. Thankfully, the PETMAN is not going to be equipped with weapons, though it will be provided with a head. (Let’s hope not as frightening as this one)

PETMAN development is lead by Boston Dynamics, working in partnership with Measurement Technologies Northwest, Oak Ridge National Lab and MRIGlobal. The work is being done for the DoD CBDP.
