Indigenous quadruped robot developed by Hyd-based Svaya Robotics for defence sector

Current Affairs

  • The indigenous robots and wearable exoskeletons were developed by Hyderabad-based Svaya Robotics in collaboration with the DRDO Labs,  Research and Development Establishment (R&DE), Pune, and the Defence Bioengineering and Electromedical Laboratory (DEBEL), Bengaluru, as technology demonstrators with their design inputs.
  • Currently, these robots are being imported from USA and Switzerland to help the country’s defence requirements and to strengthen defence capabilities.
  • Robotics is poised to play a very important role in the defence and security sectors with the DRDO taking the lead to develop them indigenously under “Make in India” drive, with aid from industry partners such as Svaya Robotics.
  • Current robots are made for structured environments with limited capabilities and are not suited for deployment in difficult situations to manoeuver terrains and field operational conditions, that Indian defence and security forces are uniquely faced with.
