Hyderabad/IBNS: Hyderabad-based Svaya Robotics in collaboration with DRDO Labs -Research and Development Establishment, Pune (RDE) and Defense Bio-engineering Electro Medial Laboratory, Bangalore (DEBEL), have developed India’s first quadruped robot and the exo-skeleton, both technology demonstrators.

Dr. Sateesh Reddy, Scientific Advisor to Raksha Mantri (Minister of Defense) and former chairman, DRDO, has visited Svaya Robotics development facility in Hyderabad, along with other senior scientists of DRDO labs, DE and DEBEL today.

He reviewed the development of the robots that Svaya has undertaken with DRDO.

Dr. Sateesh Reddy said “We are extremely happy with the rapid progress that Svaya was able to achieve in a very short period. Industry partnerships like these are essential to accelerate development of advanced robotics and take them into field trials fast and also keep developing them for dual-use.

He opined that robotics would play a very important role in enabling Indian defense in both augmenting soldiers and providing unprecedented remote reconnaissance capabilities.

Welcoming the defense officials Vijay R Seelam, founder and Managing Director Svaya Robotics said, “We are happy to associate with DRDO as part of Aatma Nirbhar Bharat mission to make our country self-reliant. The quadruped robot indigenously developed by Svaya is made to navigate in unstructured terrains to provide remote reconnaissance and inspection for the defense and security forces which otherwise are not safe for humans to operate in.”

While the exo-skeleton, has been developed to augment soldiers in both walking long distances without fatigue or in lifting heavy loads without expending much effort. Both the robots have multiple use cases in Industry and healthcare also, he added.
