    DRDO Develops Honda CRV Based Unmanned Ground Vehicle Prototype

    The Defence Research Development Organization of India (DRDO) and the Defence Research and Technology Office, Singapore, have together developed an unmanned ground vehicle that can be used during nuclear blasts and wars for a reconnaissance to help find injured people.

    The project was is executed at the Combat Vehicles Research and Development Establishment (CVRDE), Chennai, and according to the scientist (robotics division) and manager of the project, Dr N. Seetharaman, the objective of the project is to create the technology to develop an unmanned ground vehicle.

    "We started the project in 2007 and as part of the first phase, we have developed the drive by technology using which, we can drive the vehicle from a distance of anywhere between 500 meters to five km," said Dr Seetharaman. Explaining the way the vehicle works, the experts said that the unmanned vehicle was connected to an operator computer via wireless technology. The team at the CVRDE has fixed the actuating device in a Honda CRV that has automatic transmission gears.

    An operator then operates the car through a laptop using software developed by DRDO. The car has an obstacle avoidance radar and a stereo-vision 3-dimension device that transmits a three dimensional view of the car's path to the operator.

    "We can even fix a light machine gun to the car for defence purposes," informed Dr Seetharaman.

    The CVRDE is demonstrating the capabilities of the car at Shaastra, the technical festival of the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.

    Wow ! This is really cool ! A better use will be to use this technology on a heavy armored jeep like the one being manufactured by Mahindra and fix the vehicle with a 20mm or 30mm cannon, or a 50 cal machine gun and high tech equipments for surveillance and detection of men and armor in the battlefield.
