be a lot less creepy if they gave it a head, and maybe a tail that wags.

Sometimes I just google things like "unemployed dogs".

Does that mean he'll work for sheep or that he'll work for sheep?

I'm quite certain those robots aren't autonomous, though. More like R/C dogs.

The article is worth it just for the robot vs. sheepdog comparison at the end.

It costs less than a car to lease, which average around £30,000, and has a top speed of 3mph

I'm not seeing them replacing dogs any time soon.

They are very much autonomous, or rather they can be, its up to you how you want to deploy them. We have a fleet of 5 of them, and we program them to work autonomously and in conjunction with one another. They come back to charge, and then go back out.

I also work a a U.  The one's I've dealt with 'can' be autonomous but the reality is that they are primarily R/C for now with hope that an A-algorithm kicks in one day.

I'd post a link to our kid who died on wet grass but it was never made public.

I laughed when I read that. 3 mph is me when I'm backpacking with  a 40 pound backpack on an extended trip.

Also in the article "assisted by 2 biological sheep dogs" sounds more like 2 sheep dogs out in over time to cover the third.

Something tells me Boarder Collies ain't gonna have a problem finding work in the near future

Please define "work" when you describe what it is they are doing. Walking around and taking pictures? Okay... they saved you some walking about outside? What were you doing instead? Making this post?

This chart is definitely out-of-date, for humans ... but probably still mostly accurate, for dogs:
