it seems that there are a lot of inaccuracies in reports that come out of indian based news sites.  This type of reporting, IMO, tends to devalue the actual work being done by the ISRO.

"The 'SmartNav' robot being developed for the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) will help space scientists to navigate moon's surface during the manned moon mission and provide real-time data and pictures of the surface there."

There is no manned mission to the moon!

India is yet to send a human to space and actually have no official mandate to send one in the near future.  Earliest effort would be in the 2015-17 time frame.
