About Us

The novel Coronavirus, has wobbled the globe with its rapid, and uncontrollable spread. In the battle against COVID-19, large number of doctors, nurses and other paramedical workers are involved to provide effective treatment risking their own wellness. The Centre for Automation and Robotics at Hindustan Institute of Technology and Science with a unified mission to protect the frontline medical workers developed Sevili, an exclusive service robot to monitor infected patients. Sevili is capable of navigating to the isolation ward to deliver food, medication and other necessities; and facilitates remote communication between medical team and quarantined patient through video & audio aids. Currently, 5 Sevili Robots are deployed at Rajiv Gandhi Govt. Hospital. The effort has been appreciated and welcomed by Dr. Vijayabhaskar, Hon’ble Minister, Dept. of Health & Family Welfare, Tamil Nadu.

The drone pilots worked in hands with Chennai City Police during the lockdown to monitor the streets to avoid crowd gathering. Crowd monitoring by drones were very helpful for Chennai City Police as they could monitor a wide area by not roaming into streets. Sealed places are susceptible to be infectious; hence personal inspection in those areas are harmful for authorities. Our support through drone monitoring helped in easing such inspections. People began to realize that they are being monitored when a drone is spotted which resulted in reduced crowd gathering. The 9-day mission witnessed a total of 53 hours and 30 minutes drone flying hours covering approximately 33 places in Chennai city. In a country like India, Project Drishyam 4.0 can play a pivotal role in crowd monitoring by inducting more drone pilots across India.
