The Institute of Computer and Communication Systems has decades of experience in the robotics field. Its achievements include industrial robots belonging to the series RB241 and RB242. The institute has also designed adaptive robots that belong to the series RB250 in collaboration with the Kiev Academy of Sciences.
Seventh generation mobile sensor robots developed in the institute possess very high intellectual characteristics. They process huge volumes of information generated by sensors. Besides, they have features that mimic natural intellect and interpret human commands and signals. Such complex tasks performed by robots are controlled by powerful remote computers that operate in parallel.
Apart from the expertise in the field of computers, the institute also leads in communication systems. Wireless communication channels play a major role in the development of industrial robots, and the institute’s achievements in contemporary communication media are significant. The media, previously called as BITBUS and PROFIBUS, developed by the institute are now widely accepted international standards.
Combining these strengths in the fields of computer and communication systems, the institute has recently developed a mobile sensor robot prototype. The main characteristics of the robot include a double caterpillar tracing system, motion control of motors and differential gear to ensure smooth motion, and an independent battery-based power supply. The robot also features a number of sensor systems and a wireless communication channel with the control PC. The software program for control and processing of the robot’s sensors is realised in MATLAB media.
