    The UGV will be made of carbon fiber with inhouse fpv camera which can rotate 180 degrees to provide extended view. For suspension it mainly relies on its custom made honeycomb structured tires which can absorb majority of the impact. The visual feedback will be provided using rx601 receiver connected to a 5 channel transmitter radio remote which gives is 120 to 150 meters of range.A removeable battery pack is to be used to provide up to 4 hours of operational time
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    In Pakistan, as of today there are no competitors as no one is offering the same UGV but yes if we move towards international market there are some good competitors but our selling points are low cost, low maintenance , higher functionality
