Vyommitra’, the humanoid designed and developed by the ISRO has been successfully integrated with a computer ‘brain’ which enables it to ‘read’ control panels aboard and communicate with the ISRO ground stations.
- The humanoid has been developed by the ISRO Inertial Systems Unit, Thiruvananthapuram.
- VyomMitra is a half-humanoidand her body stops at the torso and has no legs.
- The humanoid will simulate the human functions required for space before real astronauts take off.
- She has been designed to resemble a human with facial expressionsand speech and sight.
- Vyommitra is also set to get a digital twin. The ‘twin’ will undergo computer simulations where the control systems are tested for microgravity conditions.
- Vyommitra will fly aboard the first unmanned test flight ahead of the crewed Gaganyaan flight expected in 2024.
