Scientists from India's Research and Development Establishment (RDE) have developed Daksh, a robot designed to detect and dispose of hazardous objects.
Daksh features a master control station that enables users to control it from a distance of 500 meters and through seven thick walls. An X-ray attachment is used for the detection of improvised explosive devices. The robot also features a water jet disrupter, which fires water at the speed of sound and can pierce thick surfaces.
The battery-powered robot, designed by a 10-member team led by RDE's Alok Mukherjee, can run for four hours and features four cameras for navigation.
