Daksh the skilled one

drdo's daksh

The first story of february newsletter of DRDO highlights the flagging off of first 5 batch of remotely operated vehicle daksh.

Daksh in Sanskrit means the skilled one. And drdo’s daksh is skilled at defusing bombs. It can climb stairs, has robotic arms to lift suspected objects and water jet to defuse bombs.

Far cry from what DARPA is working on but I must say a decent start by DRDO.
