Meet Vyom Mitra, ISRO's robot which will travel to space
First Indian 'woman' to ride to space
The robot was the centre of attraction at the inaugural session of the "Human Spaceflight and Exploration - Present Challenges and Future Trends".
What does Vyommitra mean?
"Hello everyone. I am Vyommitra, the prototype of the half-humanoid, been made for the first unmanned Gaganyaan mission," the robot said.
The robot said she can also be a companion and converse with the astronauts, recognise them and can also respond to their queries.
What ISRO Chairman said
"It will be simulating exactly the human functions there (in space). It will check whether the system is right. This will be very useful to simulate, as if a human is flying," he added.
How will Vyommitra fly?
"We are on schedule (regarding Gaganyaan). We are going to do lots of demonstration tests this year. This year end we will send our unmanned mission and the half-humanoid you have seen today is going to fly in it," he said.
The ISRO will monitor how the human system will behave in the environment control life support system.
"The humanoid project has almost completed," Sivan added.
