Time goes by very quickly. Even as a child we read about robots in science fiction books, but barely had time to mature and the robots have already appeared in schools, hospitals and streets.
When James Cameron released a few years ago on the screens of “Avatar”, the flying blue men fiction were already only partially. The idea of ??telepresence – when a person is in one place, and a certain device performs its functions in another, dates back to 1985. Marvin Lee Minsky, co-founder of Artificial Intelligence Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, pointed out three main areas for the use of telepresence: mining, undersea exploration and nuclear research.
CEO Alex R.Bot Knyazev, formerly a programmer and businessman, became interested in artificial intelligence and robotics relatively recently, in 2005. And now the Russian robots drive tour as the guide sits in his office, a sick child with the help of the robot communicates with his classmates and is present in the classroom, but doctors advise patients in absentia.
If you approach the formal, then in fact – it’s a laptop with a webcam, Skype, internet and the screen. However, due to its portability and the unusual appearance of the robot has attracted attention, and to communicate with him much more interesting than the usual computer. In addition, the robot similar to a human, and that he was instantly likable. Faced with this robot for the first time, you feel in a fantasy world where you can talk to the machine. Talking to a robot, of course, man, and, in this case, the main purpose of the machine – to represent that person in a particular place.
For the first time these robots “were published” in 2007. On the streets of Perm in the country has its first robot cop. He was nothing like the character of the cult film, but rather a small space rocket. Height 180 cm and weighing 350 kg with a very low center of gravity (to best protect themselves against the possibility of being upside down). Six video cameras, four of which – sverhshirokougolniki “fish eye” allows you to monitor everything going on around them.
With a maximum speed of movement of about 1 0 miles per hour to chase criminals, robot, of course, could not. But, thanks to built-in video camera in it, law enforcement officers to monitor the situation on the street, the robot could make comments to people who violate public order and, of course, his appearance, he attracted great attention. The developers and the police were satisfied with the experiment. The robot passed an experienced “exploitation” in Perm, from May to October 2007. Now the world’s only robotic cop is on the finalization of a development company.
Where else would such a robot to find a job? The most popular “profession” telepresence robot in Russia now – it’s advertising market. Robots act as promoters, tell us about the company. Using the touch screen, which is mounted on the body of the robot, the customer can obtain additional information. Due to the unusual sight robots can easily compete even with very beautiful girls, who usually carry out this work.
Recently, one of St. Petersburg schools helped to keep up with the robot program second graders who received a severe spinal injury and was unable to attend. The boy with the help of a robot learning, contact with classmates. The children were delighted with this almost “Electronics”, which in time became their friend.
On the characteristics robot R.Bot now is a device “growth” a little more than a meter, weighing about 40 kg. His “brain” – a processor of 1.6 Ggerts, his “nervous system» – Linux, and instead of “flaming engine” – lead-acid battery. The battery is recharged from a household electrical outlet, a charged battery lasts for 8 hours. Via wi-fi robot is connected to the Internet and everything it is you are in any part of the globe! The company released at the moment about 200 of these robots.
