PUNE TRAFFIC POLICE TO DEPLOY ROBOT FROM SP ROBOTICS MAKER LAB FOR ROAD SAFETY

14 JAN 2019, PUNE : ROADEO is India’s First Road Safety Robot deployed to help pedestrians, especially children,
to cross the roads safely. The Robot can be integrated with the traffic signals, or it can be
operated manually, if required, through a Bluetooth app. The Robot has two hands to interact
with the people, show traffic signs, and be friendly with the children. It has highly expressive
eyes to create a feel of a neighborhood helper to the children and also a chest display to show
important awareness messages.
This robot was developed by students from SP Robotics Maker Lab’s in Pune.

1. Aadi Kanchankar – VP’s Magarpatta City Public School – 8th grade
2. Parth Kulkarni- Shri Chaitanya Techno School – 8th Grade

All these students are already trained in robotics at the SP Robotics Maker Labs in Pune and
they have joined together to build this robot.

DCP Smt. Tejaswi Satpute has been highly supportive in testing and deploying this robot on
Pune Roads. Today it is being launched and will be tested on the roads for a couple of days.
