Central Railway launches Robotic ‘CAPTAIN ARJUN’ to intensify screening, surveillance


As we all know India is facing a tremendous situation this year, but our India and Indian people will always fight back and face all kinds of harsh situations with all their minds and strength.
Indians have that will to face every problem being fearless. Indian people's brain to access the problem at a slightly different level. Indian minds always move towards innovative paths, they try to think beyond what they have. Indian government along with the railway department launches robotic humans to fight against the corona pandemic. Railway Protection Force Pune, on Friday, launched a robot named 'Captain ARJUN' to intensify screening and surveillance amid coronavirus lockdown. This has been launched to screen passengers boarding the train and check the security measures to protect passengers from pandemic issues. He is considered to be the greatest Indian soldier ‘Captain Arjun’ will also keep a watch on anti-social elements.

Robotic Captain ARJUN was launched online today by Arun Kumar, Director General of railway protection force, Railway Board. Sanjeev Mittal, General Manager, Central Railway, appreciated the Indian railway protection force for their innovative measure. "The Robotic Captain ARJUN will protect the passengers and the staff from infection and also provide its surveillance," Mittal said.

Indian robotic soldier"Captain ARJUN is equipped with a motion sensor, one PTZ camera ( Tilt, Pan, Zoom Camera), and one Dome camera. The cameras use Artificial Intelligence algorithms to track antisocial activity and suspicious activity, has an inbuilt siren, motion-activated spotlight H-264 Processor, there is also in-built internal storage for recording in case there is a network failure," Central Railway said in a press release.

Captain ARJUN basically records the temperature in a digital display panel after the thermal screening. If an individual's temperature is higher than the reference range, its abnormal automatic alarm sound with a counting capacity of 999 is amazing.

Captain ARJUN has adopted a two-way communication model, video, and voice. It has been designed in such a way that the robot speaks in the local language. So there will be no complications to communicate. Indian minds you know are very complicated but innovative. Besides all of this, it has been installed with speakers to spread awareness messages about COVID-19. Indian soldier robotic Captain ARJUN will enable screening without manual encounters and its surveillance feature will prove to be a great deterrent to any unusual occurrences and ensure security in railway premises, Indian Central Railway said.

Captain Arjun is the brainchild of Alok Bohra DIG/RPF, Indian Central Railway. "The high infection rates among multiple segments of people across the world have hampered efforts to tackle COVID-19 pandemic that prompted us to consider robotic screening. Captain ARJUN can be deployed for multiple uses and it is an effective element in station access control and will augment the station security plan," Bohra said.
