The Polyteknik Kodikladad has completely designed and manufactured the first prototype of an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) in 2018. Its ability to move up to 1 kilometer away from the operator with its gasoline engine, either manually operated or following an programmed trajectory has even already been tested thid year. All the movements of the turret and the firing of the FN Minimi in 5.56mm caliber have also been tested. Once the camera mounted in the turret has detected the target determined by the operator, the latter one can start firing. Tests are carried on with a Minimi but the robot is designed to stand the firing of a 7.62mm machine gun.
