A student of the M.Sc final year of the Institute of Physics and Electronics (IPE) University of Peshawar has made wireless bomb defusing robot which is capable of defusing bomb weighing up to 21 kg from a distance of 15 meters from where the device is planted.
The M.Sc final year student of IPE Mr. Suleman, who invented the robot, informed during briefing about his innovative project at one day project and chart exhibition held at UoP on Wednesday that the wireless prototype robot is first of its kind in the world.
Wireless Bomb Defusing Robot has been invented at an estimated cost of less than one hundred thousand rupees in three years time, said Suleman. It can locate and dispose explosives weighing up to 21 KG from a distance of fifteen meters from where the device is fixed.
He informed the robot has a wireless camera for live visual transmission and can be used as spy besides having the capability of tunnel viewing and carrying out experiments in hazardous environment.
Mr. Suleman argued if the concerned government departments and industry support the project, its capacity can be enhanced, to locate and diffuse explosive device weighing up to 40 KG from 60 meters distance. The project of Mr. Suleman was put on display at the one day project and chart exhibition held at the Institute of Physics and Electronics (IPE) University of Peshawar on Wednesday. As many as twenty projects and the same number of charts were put on display in the event by the M. Sc and BS four years final students of IPE UoP.
Other research projects put on display included modern Bank Locker Security System, Water Reservoir Monitoring and Controlling Gate, Automatic Railway Gate Control System, Intelligent Fire Sniffer System based on GSM and Security Based Semi Autonomous Vehicle.
The exhibition was inaugurated by Vice Chancellor University of Peshawar Prof. Dr. Muhammad Rasul Jan. He visited the stalls and took keen interest in the creative work of the students.
In his address the Vice Chancellor described the practical manifestation students’ innovation as a very good initiative towards attracting industry for commercial production of the project products. Such exhibitions will fill the gap between theory and practical work, he added.
Director Institute of Physics and Electronics Prof. Dr. Yasin Iqbal said they are planning to lead the province in computerization of system. We are on the outlook for building strong academia industry linkages, he added.
