Robot curling coach; China sends war drones to the border; Smuggler's drone crashes into a house

Meanwhile, an assertion that China is sending drones to the border with India:
According to Indian media reports, dozens of autonomous vehicles capable of transporting both weapons and supplies are being dispatched to Tibet, with the bulk being deployed in border regions where Chinese troops are engaged in a standoff with Indian troops.

The Sharp Claw, which can be handled wirelessly and is armed with a light machinegun, and the Mule-200, which is meant as an unmanned delivery truck but can also be equipped with weaponry, are two examples of vehicles. 
According to the sheriff's report, a 17-year-old resident heard something hit her home and went outside to investigate. Outside, she found a DJI Phantom 4 drone with a package attached to it. The drone was still on and beeping, and it's onboard lights were concealed with duct tape.
Deputies later inspected the package and found several bags of marijuana and tobacco. Also inside were two cell phones with chargers.
