HYDERABAD: In order to help commandos tackling a hostage like situation, a group of students from the Gates Institute of Technology in Anatapur has now developed a “remote-operated Robotic Command system” which can easily penetrate into a building and can give the inside view of a building in critical situations.
The budding scientists involved with the mission completed the project with financial aid from none other than the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). The DRDO contributed the team Rs 6 lakh for completing the “challenging project.”
The team of young students who toiled hard to give final shape to their aspirations included P Bharath,Vinay Kumar Dasagranthi, G Ramesh Babu, G Harish Kumar Reddy and V Sai Rahul who got the chance to present the prototype in front of 280 top scientists such as Dr V K Saraswath, Scientific adviser to defence minister, “Missile Putri’ Tessy Thomas and Agni 5 team members at a programme organised by the local chapter of Aeronautical Society of India. “We are also invited to the Aerospace meet which is going to held inNew Delhi. The defense minister will attend the meet,” said team member Vinay Kumar.
Explaining the working of the project, the team leader Gandhi said the prototype is fitted with high resolution video cameras and can sneak into any premises, capture videos and can instantly relay the same to the devises strapped to the wrists of commandos. “The robotic command system, thus will help the commandos make a quick decision and launch a counter attack with an absolute idea of the number of fire arms and terrorists hiding inside a building,” Gandhi added. The project, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2013, could also be operated by android phones.
