    Bagalkot youth's robot is likely to 'join' Army.
    Vinobha K T, TNN | May 14, 2012, 07.29AM IST

    Mangalore: If everything goes well, a radio frequency (RF) remote-controlled robot developed by a young engineer from Bagalkot will soon become a part of the Indian Army. Naveen Raghavendra Shirur, an alumnus of Basaveshwara Engineering College, has already met the Army's deputy chief (information systems and training) Lt Gen Ramesh Halagali and explained about various features of his smallest (RF) remote-controlled surveillance robot. The robot can survey the movements of enemies.

    He claims that the robot, which is 6.1cm in length, 5.1cm in height and 5.4cm in width, cannot be easily noticed by enemies.

    "The cameras fixed in the robot will send audio and video signals to the servers. We can operate it from remote places. One major feature of the robot is that it can also function as an explosive if enemies trace it. The robot will explode when enemies lift it from the ground," he said.Naveen said that during his meeting with Let Gen Ramesh, the officer told him that it was a first of its kind robot he had seen in his entire career. "He appreciated my efforts and also assured me that the matter will be discussed with the scientists of Indian Army Robotic Research Centre," he added.

    Naveen has won Limca Book of Records and Indian Book of Records for his robot. He is now in the process of applying for a patent for the prototype robot. He had earlier developed a robot with rotating gun assembly as part of his project in 2009. The solar -powered robot was capable of firing bullets in angles.

    5.1 cm is good. Little soldier would be tactically useful in Counter Insurgency Ops.
    Questions:
    Is it rugged enough? How hard can it land?

    I doubt it is a UAV...i believe it is more of a land robot

    I know. I was wondering if it can hop around or probably make a hard landing if dropped from UAV? I hope I'm not being too futuristic.
    Success of this robot would partly depend on how well it is applied/embedded in a field situation - the larger picture. Even though by itself it may be a pretty good machine.

    He should get the required funding, scholarship etc. if there is a plan and need. I'm hoping more would come from him.

    This is from Recon Robotics, isn't it? however is it similar to what has been developed by the youth? how did he fit a firing mechanism coupled with actual firepower?

    Please don't tell me that the robot is actually similar because an Indian company has already copied it and is actively marketing it.

    I said: 'something similar' in my post.. ( Size )


    From the article:

    I would like appreciate the effort of the young engineer, in fact it is these kind people with a passion should Join the Defence Research Agencies.
