HULC is a powered exoskeleton which is being developed by Lockheed Martin for soldiers and military personnel. HULC enables the wearer to carry increased loads over longer distances. Described as ‘wearable robot’s’, exoskeletons sense what tasks the user’s body wants to perform and then assists the motion thus saving the wearer energy.
Could be deployed by US troops as early as this summer.
