Robotic Device to Help Commandos
A remotely-operated Robotic Command System, which can provide real time images to commandos

Hyderbad, India—Scientists plan to equip a robot with artificial intelligence, auto navigation and facial detection features in the next two phases. Eventually, the budding scientists want to enable its operation through an android phone.  Such a Robotic Command System would come in handy for commandos, police personnel and firemen.

It would also be fitted with infra-red camera to capture thermo-graphic images.

In the event of people becoming unconscious in a smoke-filled room due to a fire in a building, the robotic device would quickly locate them and ensure speedier evacuation.

A remotely-operated Robotic Command System, which can provide real time images to commandos from inside a building in a hostage-like situation that occurred during Mumbai terror attack on Taj Hotel, has been designed and developed by a group of engineering students.

Fitted with high resolution video cameras can sneak into a building, capture real time video and instantly relay them to commandos' wrist-worn communication devices.

The Robotic Command System would help in launching quick and precise rescue operations, according to P. Bharath, leader of the project, taken up in collaboration with the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

The prototype of the first phase of the three-phase machine had been completed and its operation was demonstrated before V. K. Saraswat, Scientific Advisor to Defence Minister, DRDO scientists and others during a ‘Luminary Series Lecture' organised by the Aeronautical Society of India's Hyderabad Chapter here on Saturday.
