These heavy duty robots are designed to carry heavy and bulky equipment in terrain that vehicles would struggle in. Designed to negotiate over any obstacle, these robotic mules are freakishly advance in the way they move. The robot will carry gear, such as heavy backpacks that can slow down ground forces. It is intended to follow a military unit of soldiers autonomously, catching up with the unit on field with supplies, including food and ammunition. Refinements have made the robot surprisingly quiet, an important characteristic on a secret mission. Future versions of the pack mule will be able to interpret verbal and visual commands.

The video shows the robot at 37 sec in the video. This is related to engineering because engineers had to design and built this and give this to the army.
