DRDO’s Daksh the robo for Indian Army....

This robot was developed by Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and was inducted by Indian Army around 2011. It is primarily designed to detect and recover Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). The currents reports state that 20 Daksh robots are already being used by the Indian Army.

The X-ray vision in Daksh can easily identify a hazardous object and can also diffuse it with a jet of water. It can perform complex tasks such as climbing a staircase, negotiating cross-country terrains, towing a suspected vehicle away from a crowded area. This one has also got an upgrade in 2015 and has now become lighter, 3-times faster and rugged than its previous model. Further, the makers have induced it with chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear hazard detection mechanism. It is made of aluminum alloy which also adds to its sturdiness and makes it light-weighted.
