Delta 3.0 robot created by an Engineering student to fights against Delta coronavirus
Delta 3.0 robot created by an Engineering student to fights against Delta coronavirus. The robot was created by a team of two engineering students. Nishant Sharma student of 3rd Year Computer Science Engineering student at Sharda University and Atul Kumar 3rd Year Electronics Engineering student at GL. Bajaj Institute of Management & Technology. Duo developed
The Delta Robot 3.0 for delivering medical essentials in COVID isolation wards.
Feature of Delta 3.0 Robot
• Can carry a payload (medicine, food, etc ) up to 50kg
• 1 Km remote control range
• More than 3 hours of battery life at full load
• Camera with Two-axis motion
• Microphone & speaker for two way communication between and patient and doctor
• Automatic hand sanitizing unit
• Sensor for detecting the presence of human
• Reminds people of sanitizing hands & also tell corona related guidelines
• Six DOF hands for picking and placing objects
Developed Delta 3.0 Robot for automatic hand sanitizing and for making people aware about Corona Virus & its Preventions.
5 Delta 3.0 robots are currently working at
• CM Office – LUCKNOW
• JP Hospital- CHITTA
• DM Office – BULANDSHAHR
• KD Hospital- MATHURA
Another robot created by these innovators is a Bipedal Walking Humanoid Robot named as Telesto. It is a 5.5 feet tall total Weighs 25 Kg. And it has four DOF in each leg. Telesto is India’s First Human-Sized Bipedal Humanoid Robot. All other Humanoid robots in India before this were either on wheels or if walking were around 3 feet in height. Telesto is a 5.5 feet tall walking Humanoid Robot.
The story behind Telesto Robot development
WABOT-1 (developed in 1972) It was the first android, able to walk, communicate with people. Since then most of the countries have developed their own versions of Human Sized Humanoid Robot.
Even after 70 years of WABOT-1, if we look at the top 15 Indian Humanoid Robots we will see only 2 types of Humanoid Robots: either 5-6 feet tall Humanoid Robot on wheels, or Child Sized (2-3 feet tall) walking robot.
Nothing close to our fascination (Bipedal Humanoids like ASIMO & ATLAS)
On analysis, we found there are mainly 2 factors for this
1- Bipedal ( Walking Locomotion ) is very complex.
2- It is very expensive
Nishant Sharma said “So we finally decided to make our own Human Sized – Bipedal Robot in May 2019 with all the resources that we had. We continued to work on the project for 6 months with full dedication, spending a lot of our own money,” to Robotics India.
Atul Kumar said “But we ran out of resources Since then the project has been at a halt, Although we want to improve the robot a lot more, “told to Robotics India.
Robot powering Bulandshahr collectorate for social distancing and sanitization
A bright red color robot joined the Bulanshahr district administration in Uttar Pradesh to help people to maintain social distancing and minimize the spread of coronavirus by dispensing sanitizer to its staff visitors. Titled Delta 3.0 the robot, fitted with sensors, can detect human presence and dispenses sanitizer automatically.
The robot was also appeared by the district Magistrate of Bulandshahr Ravindra Kumar.District Magistrate of Bulandshahr Ravindra Kumar said, “We have deployed a robot, made by local engineering students at the covid-19 control room at the collectorate. The robot is used for giving sanitizers to employees and visitors, thereby avoiding human involvement in the job.”
The robot can work for one to one-and-a-half hours at a stretch after which its battery needs to be recharged. As of now, it will dispense the only sanitizer.
“Presently, we have only one robot. However, we are facilitating the makers to buy spare parts so that they can deliver two more,” Kumar said.
Such robots will soon be deployed in hospitals in the district for serving food, water, and medicines to patients to reduce contact between healthcare workers and infected patients.
“The robot, named ‘Delta 3.0’, will not only help doctors and staff but also prevent them from direct contact, thus avoiding infections, Kumar informed.
According to an official statement, “The robot has a display and speaker through which it can give instructions to patients and display the fed message or slogans.”
The robot, controlled through a mobile allocation, now costs around Rs 1 lakh, the statement said. Delta 3.0 robot created by an Engineering student to fights against Delta coronavirus
