IIT made fighter robot, fires five bullets in a second, know what are the other features
You must remember Chitti from Superstar Rajinikanth's film 'Robot'. Specialized in firing a volley of bullets in the blink of an eye. Now, this film story has been garlanded by the scientists of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur. The robot made by them can in the coming time, along with guarding the border, destroy the plans of those who break into the security of the country.
Drones can also be attacked with the help of AI
Equipped with artificial intelligence, machine learning, and mathematical modeling, this robot fires five bullets in a second. It can also stop the drone by recognizing it. It has a lidar (a device for measuring the distance with the help of light), a 3D camera, a microprocessor, and many types of sensors. The laser light and automatic barrel (Nal) setting make it a perfect target. This is the prototype model of the robot, from which fiber bullets are released. In the future, it can be developed according to the need of the army and security agencies. In the coming times, this prototype of the robot is being considered important given the war to be fought with state-of-the-art resources.
Patent process begins
The robot has won the title of Fighter Robot in Canada two years ago. Its advanced version is being prepared for the Robomaster competition to be held in Philadelphia in 2022. Experts have started the process of patenting for the advanced version.
Will walk even on bumpy roads
Professor of Electrical Engineering at IIT's Intelligent Systems and Control Lab. Under the direction of Lakshmidhar Behera, Ashok Kumar Choudhary of MTech final year, Ayush of BTech third year, Siddharth, Aryan, BTech final year Lavish Kumar, Muskan Aggarwal, and Vaibhav Vardan have designed this robot named Phoenix. It can travel in all four directions at a speed of 20 kmph.
It can also be used on bumpy roads. Currently, the speed of bullets fired by robots is 25 meters per second. It can be increased as per the need. Experts have designed the robot in the shape of a tank, in which it can automatically determine the angle of its barrel according to the target.
Can take decisions automatically
Student Ashok Kumar Chaudhary said that along with monitoring the drone, it can also eliminate it. For this, the robot has onboard 3D cameras and microprocessors. It will be able to send messages by estimating the speed, distance of the drone. With the help of artificial intelligence, it can attack drones by taking automatic decisions.
Phoenix is equipped with a wide range of features. Technology and sensors are being enhanced in this. The students are being prepared for the competition right now. In the coming times, it can also be used for guarding the border.
