Hyderabad: In line with the ‘Make in India’ initiative, a Hyderabad-based company researches, designs, develops and manufactures custom surveillance equipment for the country’s security forces.
The company, HC Robotics, is supported by research centers in the United States of America and Europe. It specializes in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), EOIR cameras and AI-based image processing solutions.
“We make drones, cameras and tac towers. We supply them to Indian borders for surveillance purposes,” HC Robotics project manager Dr. Dileep told ANI.
Highlighting the specialty of the company’s drones, he said they have a 40-minute flight time with a 5kg payload and provide live feed to base camp with low latency. These are equipped with advanced collision avoidance and obstacle avoidance features allowing for the safest possible flights.
These drones can be useful for aerial surveillance, gathering military intelligence, conducting search and rescue (SAR) operations, he said.
Notably, HC Robotics received the “Good Samaritan” award from the Rachakonda Police Station for its drone services during the first wave of COVID-19.
“We also make 4K resolution cameras that have the gimble itself. Another product is a tac tower which is a 40ft long carbon fiber tube that surveys a radius of about 5km from a height of 40ft (above the ground),” said the Dr Dileep.
In partnership with institutions such as IIT Hyderabad, IIIT-DM Kurnool, AP, for research collaboration on drones, gyrostabilized gimbal cameras, artificial intelligence and other advanced technologies, the company is committed to providing advanced, innovative and technology-based solutions at an affordable price. costs.
HC Robotics, established in November 2018, is a team of over 60 members, including a research team that includes PhDs, engineers from IIT and other high-end institutes in India, USA and pillars of the industry with real-time experience.
