Andhra Pradesh-based Bhairav Robotics LLP has taken a significant leap forward in Indian robotics with the unveiling of “Shvana,” the country’s first armed quadruped Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV). This versatile robot promises to revolutionize security and defense operations across various contexts, from homeland security and border patrol to industrial inspections and disaster response.
Shvana is equipped with a suite of advanced sensors, including cameras, LiDAR, and radar, coupled with powerful processing capabilities and intelligent software. This enables it to navigate complex and challenging terrains, from rugged mountains to urban environments. Its modular design allows for easy integration of various payloads, such as manipulators, weapons systems, and communication equipment, adapting to diverse mission requirements.
One of Shvana’s key strengths is its focus on minimizing human risk. By being remotely controlled, Shvana allows operators to stay out of harm’s way while facing potential threats. Redundant sensor systems further enhance reliability, ensuring mission success even in critical situations.
Shvana’s advanced software algorithms analyze live audio and video feeds, coupled with sensor data, to identify and classify threats both within and beyond line of sight. This real-time situational awareness allows for swift and precise action, minimizing collateral damage and maximizing mission effectiveness.
Shvana is not just a robot; it’s a platform for future innovation. Its modular design and open architecture pave the way for continuous upgrades and integration of new technologies. This ensures that Shvana remains at the forefront of robotic advancements, serving the evolving needs of its users.
Shvana offers three operational modes for optimal flexibility:
- Autonomous: The robot independently navigates and executes pre-programmed tasks.
- Semi-autonomous: Human operators provide high-level instructions, while Shvana handles the finer details of execution.
- Manual: Operators directly control the robot’s movements and actions.
- Speed: 1-1.5 m/sec
- Payload: 10 kg
- Weight: 30 kg (without payload)
- Range: 5-8 km
- Endurance: 90-120 minutes
