Project summary

In the frames of the given Project it is supposed to realize the multi-disciplinary research based on a viable mix of scientific advancement and technology integration aiming on the further development and perfection of such main robotic elements as control systems, technical vision systems, manipulation and sensory systems. In future on the basis of developed elements flexible robotic means can be designed for defense of Critical Infrastructure, which can be damaged or destroyed by deliberate acts of terrorism, natural disasters and other causes, and mainly for increase of staff and population safety and security.

RTC has a wide experience in development and exploitation of robots and manipulators for different applications, including mobile robotic means for operation under extreme conditions and for security support. Special attention is paid to control systems development and to reaching higher levels of robot autonomy, also space manipulators are developed. Works on robots computer simulation and technical vision systems development are successfully held in RTC.

In the given Project a number of ideas will be further advanced, which were developed in the frames of successfully realized ISTC Project # 1147 “Development of Robotic Elements”, as the result of which the functional model of space technological robot-manipulator was created. The manipulator was developed in a modular construction that provided its reconfigurability and flexibility; exactly this approved approach is proposed to be applied for the robotic elements creation. The realization of idea to place plug-in special-purpose gripping devices on the universal manipulator’s hand device was found very productive and will be used for the manipulation system creation.
