Tiltle: Unmanned Ground Vehicle for Defense and Civil Applications
The modern era stands forth on the pillars of computer based technologies. To overcome certain problems of the world that is turning into a more technological and industrial globe day by day, we want to develop an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) by the exploitation of these technologies. The UGV will be controlled by a human operator at a remote location through a communications link. The various analytical processes are provided by the operator based upon feedback from remote sensory input including video cameras. Aim is to develop an unmanned vehicle that is rechargeable and regulated at a distance through a wireless or wired communication. Installation of wireless video cameras that will send real time audio and video signals to the destination will be carried out. The UGV will have two laser guns for the purpose of aiming at the target under defensive circumstances.

Vision and Objective
A variety of potential UGV applications exist in the defense and civil realm. The foremost reason is that planning for future military capabilities assumes the availability of highly mobile, agile, promptly deployable forces. Incorporation of robotic systems will reduce the causalities, monitor highly suspicious areas and counter battle fatigue. Tele operation capabilities enable standoff operations and thereby reduce or remove operator risks in highly stressful and dangerous environments, such as minefields and in areas of potential explosive hazards. From the civil sector, fire fighting department, disaster management teams and the likes of it can apply it to reduce damage and save precious lives. The diversity of applications make it a multi-purpose vehicle for different fields.
Intent is to develop the project; help the military and civil sectors of our country to achieve their goals with excellence and adoption of the advanced technology of autonomous mobile systems that represent the forefront of robotics research
