The book summarizes the experience of different countries - USA, Israel, Russia, China, Poland and Ukraine - in the development of unmanned ground vehicles. 
 
The book also highlights legal and ethical issues related to the use of such warfare tools. 
 
"The era of terrestrial combat robots has begun, and the robots used at present are only at an early stage of development. The authors of the book emphasize that terrestrial combat robots will become an integral part of the land-based warfare in the near future, but in the long run they can play a decisive role in the development of combat operations," a description of the book says.
 

The NATO military alliance also turned its attention to military drones.
