    Indian Army orders 200 robots to defuse explosives

    Tirupati:
    Robotics scientist and IIT-Delhi professor, Dr Subir Kumar Saha, speaking at the 104th Indian Science Congress here on Saturday, said that India has progressed a lot in robotics. He said that the Indian Army has placed an order for the manufacture of 200 robots to defuse explosives.

    Dr Saha said that DRDO has developed Daksh, a robot that can defuse bombs. “Orders have been placed with three companies for production of 200 robots. The remotely operated vehicle Daksh, designed and developed by the Research and Development Establi-shment (Engineers) of DRDO, is useful for bomb disposal units of the army, police and paramilitary forces,” he said. He said a treadmill-like walking simulator has also been developed and given to the Secunderabad Army Training Centre.
