A Hyderabad-based company researches, designs, develops and manufactures bespoke surveillance equipment for the country’s security services as part of the ‘Make in India’ effort.
HC Robotics is supported by research institutes in the United States and Europe. It focuses on drones, EOIR cameras, and AI-based image processing.
“Drones, cameras and tactical towers are among the products we manufacture. For monitoring purposes, we supply them to the Indian border “HC Robotics Project Manager Dr. Dileep spoke with ANI.
He noted that the company’s drones have a range of 40 minutes with a payload of 5 kg and provide live feed to base camp with low latency, highlighting the unique characteristics of the drones.
These include advanced collision avoidance and obstacle avoidance technologies to ensure the safest possible flights. He thinks the drones could be used for aerial surveillance, obtaining military intelligence and carrying out search and rescue (SAR) missions.
HC Robotics has been honored by the Rachakonda Police Station with the “Good Samaritan” award for its drone services during the first wave of COVID-19.
“We also produce cameras with 4K resolution that include the gimble. Another product is a tac tower, which is a 40 foot long carbon fiber tube that provides surveillance within a radius of approximately 5 kilometers from a height of 40 feet (above ground)” Dr. Dileep explained.
The company is committed to providing advanced, innovative and technology-based solutions at affordable costs, partnering with institutions such as IIT Hyderabad and IIIT-DM Kurnool, AP for a collaboration of research on drones, gyro-stabilized gimbal cameras, artificial intelligence and other advanced technologies.
HC Robotics, founded in November 2018, has a research team of more than 60 members, including Doctors, Engineers from IIT and other leading institutes in India and the United States, as well as veterans of the industry with real-world expertise.
