Pune Police Has A New Member On Board, And It’s Not Human!

Published on 10 October, 2018 at 2:47 pm By

Imagine one day our cops are not the one in their khaki uniforms. They are not even humans! No, it is not merely an imagination anymore. The Pune city police have acquired a new member in their team who is not a human. It is the first indigenously developed unmanned vehicle. An electrically powered and remotely controlled robot, named Daksh, will be joining the Pune Police team. It is the first indigenously developed mobile-robot in the country.

It is designed and developed by the engineers of the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) in Pune. The DRDO had flagged off Daksh for the Indian Army in 2011. The Army had procured 20 ROVs and now the Pune Police will be procuring the unmanned vehicle.

 

 

Till date, Pune city has witnessed three bomb blasts: the German Bakery blast on February 13, 2010, the serial blasts on JM Road on August 1, 2012, and the Vishrambaug police station blast on July 11, 2014

 

Pune police commissioner Venkatesham took to Twitter to share the good news.



 

 

A battery-operated remote-controlled robot Daksh will be handed over to the bomb squad. It will not only detect Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) and hazardous objects but will also defuse them. Pune Police stated that the presence of Daksh will reduce the susceptibility of terror in the city.

If Daksh detects a bomb then it can defuse the bomb with its water jet disrupter. It has a shotgun, which can break open locked doors and can scan cars for explosives. This is such a welcome move by Pune police. Do you like Daksh?
