For the use of defence and security forces, students at the Institute of Technology and Management (ITM) in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh, have developed a unique firing helmet powered by artificial intelligence (AI).
The AI-based firing helmet, according to the college’s director, has a GPS tracker and can broadcast images and videos to the base or control center. The helmet, according to one of the students working on the project, will also aid in tracking any soldiers who may have lost communication. “It is an AI-based firing helmet for soldiers that has a GPS tracker. It can send videos and photos to the control room. It can also fire in all directions within a set range,” stated the Director of ITM College, NK Singh.
The smart helmet was created by Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA) and Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) students, and the model is called “AI-Based Automatic Firing Helmet.” “We have made this helmet to protect our jawans and policemen. Its purpose is to track the soldiers with whom it gets difficult to connect as they get stuck in border areas during the landslide and snowfall,” said a student, Pratima Goswami.
Goswami explained that a helmet, barrel, transmitter, receiver, bullet, HD portable DVR, battery, solar panel, remote, indicator, and trigger have been used for this model.
