​​Project of a crawler-based robotic complex designed to effectively suppress street riots, proposed by scientists of the Kabardino-Balkarian Scientific Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The turtle robot plans to suppress the protests using electric shock devices, mesh throwers and quick-hardening foam.

Development data is available on the Rospatent website.

The turtle robot, according to design documents, has a streamlined body, resembling a shell. Scientists have made its shape such that even a physically strong and agile person will find it difficult to grab the robot and turn it over. Also, this type of body is designed to minimize the likelihood of injury, since it does not have protrusions or corners of the mechanism.

Two modifications of the robot are offered. The first is a high-speed model for arresting individual offenders and “dissecting” the crowd. The second model – robots – “shield bearers” for quick installation of barriers.

The size of a turtle robot is about the waist of a person. They will be able to reach speeds of up to 60 km/h.
