TOI exclusive: India working on robots that may patrol borders

印度时报独家报道: 印度正在研发可用于边境巡逻的机器人


BENGALURU: As part of enhancing India's defence capabilities, scientists have been quietly working on all-terrain artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled robots that may eventually patrol the country's borders.

班加罗尔: 为增强印度国防能力,科学家们一直在悄悄研制全地形人工智能(AI)机器人,这些机器人最终可能会部署在印度边境巡逻。

Scientists from defence PSU Bharat Electronics Limited’s (BEL) Central Research Laboratory (CRL) in Bengaluru, who began work on this first responder robot in December 2018, are confident of having the first prototype by December 2019.


BEL CMD Gowthama MV told TOI: “AI will change how some critical operations are conducted by the armed forces, and our robot will even been able to patrol the borders.”

BEL市场营销总监Gowthama MV告诉印度时报:“人工智能将改变军方执行一些关键任务的方式,我们的机器人甚至能够在边境巡逻。”

Globally, companies like Irobot Corporation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Mitsubishi, Thales Group, BAE Systems, General Dynamics Corporation, et al, have been working on first responder border patrol robots. Korea has been building completely different kind of robots—some reports describe them as machines inspired by the Avatar movie.


Experts TOI spoke with—security observers, former military commanders and members of think-tanks —say India is likely to take at least a decade, if not more, to have a functional robot that can perform this task.


At present, the estimated cost of each of these robots—if and when orders are placed—would be in the range of Rs 70 lakh and Rs 80 lakh per unit for small orders. “The cost can come down if there are large orders,” Gowthama said.

This is the future. Lets focus on tech rather than statues and mandirs. This is how we defeat Pakistan because of the superioirty of our technology. We have to be like Israel

Research and development in every field - be it in defence, space, manufacturing etc, is flourishing under the Modi Regime. No previous central government has been so successful as Modi Government as well. India needs him for at least the next 15 years.
