In what you called 'a great invention', an Indian inventor developed a smart camp for the soldiers to protect them from the harsh winters and keep them warm. The Smart Camp, which has been developed by Shyam Chaurasia, an inventor at the Atal Community Innovation Centre (ACIC) of the Meerut Institute of Engineering and Technology (MIET) can also help the army people track the enemies' movements while sitting at a distance of up to 50 km away from them.
This Smart Army Camp, uses a small heater plate to heat the camp. Interestingly, there is no need for solar power or electricity to heat them, rather, the soldiers can charge these heater plates with their own hands using a physically rotated charger. The chargeable Smart Army Camp also has a battery for backup purposes, so soldiers can use the backup when needed.
Apart from that, the Hi-tech sensors that have been installed in the camp will help the soldiers track the movement of enemies. Furthermore, it also has four human radio sensors that will help in conveying information about the approaching enemy to the soldiers. These sensors are installed around the camp like landmines and are connected to the camp through radio frequency.
According to Chaurasia, he got an idea of a camp after reading about the enemies' attack on CRPF camps. He then prepared a prototype project of the camp with the help of the college and the ACIC, Meerut. He also received funding from ACIC-MIET Meerut for this project. He says that "if I get more assistance, I can make this camp bulletproof as well".
MIET Vice-Chairman Puneet Agarwal said that there is an Idea Innovation Research Lab in the Atal Community Innovation Centre of the college. "Chaurasia's project would ensure the safety of our soldiers." A letter has been written to the Prime Minister and the Defence Minister for their cooperation and guidance over the project made by him".
Mahadev Pandey, Scientific Officer of Gorakhpur, said that this innovation is a good option meant for the security of the soldiers engaged in the defence of the country. If given a chance, it may prove to be even more effective, he said.
