Subject robots in recent years become an increasingly hot. While robots have long been working on the industry, those who come to our homes and offices, will be simple, cheap and small
They will appear where they are least expected.
In Russia and in the world of development and production of robots initially were mainly engaged in the organization of the heavy areas — for example, defense or aerospace. Gradually, however, as it was in his time with personal computers, the focus shifts to B2B, and then the mass market. Some compare this market with smartphone market — when there are several platforms, and third-party developers have created many applications that evolutionary path finding their place in the final consumer.
Centers of robotics, of course, are the U.S. and Japan. In Russia, the industry is gaining momentum, so let’s see what we have and what (or who already?) We may be living in the next decade.
As stated on the website of the company-maker, "Giperkolobok" the world’s first project to create a robot friend. Gingerbread Man has a "character" and the ability to evolve. Artificial intelligence robot based on neural networks. Every day he trained on the events occurring around him, and remembers what pleases his master, and what is not, how much the master wakes up, when he returns home, what time loves to play with him, and when prefers to watch TV. Lifestyle and psycho-host effect on the formation of character robot that makes each unique. Giperkolobok self-contained, there is no need to use the remote or program it. You just have to turn it on, and it is necessary to manage the voice commands (originally it recognizes about 100 key words). The robot also feels the touch, and defines the parameters of the environment.
The creator of "Bun" — LLC "MIRP — Intelligent Systems" was established in 2008 on the basis of "PEACOCK Technology» (www.pawlin.ru) to highlight the project to build intelligent robot toys into a separate company. February 22, 2013 the company became a resident of Skolkovo.
Resident "Skolkovo" Company "aerobic" is developing drones for peaceful purposes, a variety of modules to them and provides aviamonitoringa. Such systems may find widespread application, from the study of the situation on the roads to aerial photography. In the near future UAV can be seen at the International Aviation and Space Salon "MAKS 2013" (from August 27 to September 1).
Robot — snow thrower
The product is manufactured by several guys in a garage rented for 2,000 rubles a month. Team — resident Chelny IT Park, and the first instance has already found buyers in the Czech Republic. The robot is a chassis on tracks with front bucket and he knows how to determine the weather, when it’s time to start cleaning. According to the founders, analogues abroad cost $ 10,000, while Chelninsky cleaner costs about $ 2,000.
The mobile robot is a new generation of monitoring of apartments, town houses, offices and storage space. In the robot chamber can be equipped with sensors smoke leaks gas analyzer, etc. xTurion can be used both independently and as a complement to existing security systems. For example, you are away from home. Receives a call about a smoke detector triggered the request podverdit call. Previously, you had to either throw an urgent case and go home, or podverzhdaet concern with the risk to pay for the false alarm. When integrated with the security system automatically drives the robot to the appropriate point and begins to broadcast the video, which in turn speeds up and facilitates the work of the operators of the companies providing monitoring.
In April 2013 the company "Iksturion" gain the status of Skolkovo, a cluster of information technology.
Develops the same team that xTurion. Guys want to create a new generation of Colosseum — ground on which to fight robots controlled through the Internet. Steer will be using the keyboard and game controllers, and to get feedback for video game via the website portal. In June 2012, the project has received investment from RSV Partners in the amount of $ 20 million in February 2013 launched an alpha version of the site. Testing for the potential audience was planned to finish in June 2013.
Platform (and the game) allows you to control the radio-controlled tanks, robots, toy cars, etc. In this case players will not see the electronic graphics, and image with the control models transmitted via webcam with the imposition of elements of augmented reality. The project is still in development. Glavbot aimed at gamers, game developers, and anyone interested in robotics.
Navigation system, "autopilot for transport robots" that can work as part of a land transport or water robots, drones and autonomous planetary robotic technology-based machine vision SINS and GLONASS / GPS. Under the second component (Warehouse), the company completes the testing of multiple versions of autopilot systems to be installed on certain types of standard warehouse equipment (forklifts, stackers, etc.).
"Autopilot" will allow the mobile robot to always know your location and surroundings, as well as calculate the route to a given point with the static and dynamic obstacles. The uniqueness of solutions, according to the founders, is that for the first time on the market will be launched commercially produced, a standard set of navigation with technical vision.
At the end of the 2013 edition is scheduled trial runs, mass production is planned to be deployed in 2015-2016.
The company "RoboSiVi" — the resident space cluster "Skolkovo".
The project of "KiberTeh", which allows you to create a robot anyone. Is a designer, to which you can tie to any desired part. Controller is responsible for the behavior of its own design with a simple visual programming environment. The project is designed more for education — children learn robotics, and adults collect toys for the amusement of themselves.
The designer intended as a happy medium between the two approaches. With Lego Mindstorms can easily understand schoolboy, but his options are limited (say, about a robot with stereo vision there can only dream). Products based on Arduino and Raspberry Pi are
given more freedom, but also require much (for example, to deal with the compatibility of the different components), so are the lot of enthusiasts. Teachers and students of Mathematics and Mechanics of the Faculty decided to combine the advantages of these options by making TRIC rich features and thus easy to learn.
The robot was created by members of the snake
- R.BOT — 100
The company was founded in 2007 by entrepreneur Alexey Knyazev for the development and implementation of solutions in the field of security and surveillance. In 2008, the company began to develop the project «R.BOT», telepresence robot. About him repeatedly referred to sdelanounas.
It helped R.BOT virtually "go to school," a student who was at home with a broken spine. (St. Petersburg High School number 586)
- Synergy Swan
In early 2013 the company introduced a new product — a desktop robot Synergy Swan, which can be used, for example, in the role of robonyani. It is a semi-spherical platform on wheels with arms, like a swan’s neck. It is attached tablet or smartphone (Android). Text management is through the browser.
The best part of the robot from the RBOT — is its price tag. Synergy Swan costs less than $ 500 (foreign counterparts rarely dip below $ 2,000).
Robots are widely used for promotional purposes as promoters.
Another robot avatar from Moscow company Wicron. Besides the robot they still have, for example, Venrobot to diagnose ventilation. The robot has a rotating "head" and the mobile platform. Robot vision provided by two video cameras. One is mounted on the head and is used to communicate with other people. The second looks at the wheel. The robot is equipped with a parking assist system that simplifies robot control in tight spaces. 1.5 meter height of the robot. Weight — 16 kg. The scope of application is similar to R.BOT: merchandising, promotion, remote bossing, visiting exhibitions, remote consultations, etc. Price for one issue — 150 thousand rubles. To purchase, you must pre-order this month.
