High-tech Mobile Drone Vehicle to enhance Lucknow Police’s surveillance ops

The police authorities in urban regions of Uttar Pradesh often rely on drone surveillance, especially during crowded events. In a move to enhance drone surveillance operations in the city, Lucknow Police is set to introduce a highly advanced Mobile Drone Vehicle (MDV).

Notably, this specialised vehicle-backed drone has an impressive 10-hour flight duration, coupled with advanced facial recognition technology. This marks a significant upgrade compared to the drones currently used by police teams, which typically have a flight duration of only 10 to 15 minutes.

The city-based robotic company, Roboz, led by robotics expert Milind Raj, has developed an advanced drone integrated with a car, serving as both its base and operational unit.
● Another notable feature of this Mobile Drone Vehicle (MDV) is its mobility. With a quick and straightforward installation process, it is ready for immediate deployment.
● This vehicle-integrated drone enables continuous monitoring through its onboard drone, with live feed accessible via an internal screen.
● It is equipped with a wired connection and a generator to ensure continuous battery backup.
● Significantly, the drone can be equipped with criminal data from police records, enabling it to identify individuals using its facial recognition technology and subsequently alert the authorities.
● Reportedly, this drone’s usage can be highly effective for city monitoring during upcoming events such as political processions related to the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, IPL matches, and other gatherings.

During the preliminary trials conducted, the drone successfully monitored activities from an altitude exceeding 70 feet from the ground and captured clear images from a height of 20 feet. Further trials are planned to evaluate the drone’s maximum flight capabilities and additional monitoring features before its official deployment for operational use.
