Pittsburgh Steelers Testing the MVP | DRIVE Mobile Tackling Dummy

Last week I wrote about a robot that may train the next ping pong great. Now there’s this out of the NFL: The Pittsburgh Steelers, bane of Chargers fans everywhere, are experimenting with robotic tackling dummies.

The Mobile Virtual Player (get it? MVP) is a robotic tackling dummy operated by remote control. The technology was developed by engineers at Dartmouth College, where it’s been in use by the football squad since last year.

“It’s an awesome piece of football technology,” said Steelers coach Mike Tomlin. “I am always interested in ways to utilize technology in terms of teaching football. We are excited to get a close look at it.”

The Rogers Athletic MVP-DRIVE Mobile Tackling dummy made quite the showing recently on the Pittsburgh Steelers practice field, being met with rave reviews.
