Until July 10, Sevkabel Port is hosting Caring Robots exhibition. From exoskeletons that can give you superhuman strength to a robotic church lady, the display brings together the wonders of robotic art created by ITMO students. Can robots paint like artists? Or perform? Do they pose a threat or can they actually protect us? Let’s find out what ITMO’s engineers and media artists think.
With scorching weather on the horizon, we’ve rounded up a handful of ideas on what to do indoors to stay cool in town this weekend – and just a few more for when the sun goes down.
The team of ITMO’s Youth Robotics Lab became first in the RCJ OnStage category among school students aged 14-19 at the national round of RoboCup 2022. At the contest, the team Simple Dimple presented their musical robots who performed Caprice No. 24 by Niccolò Paganini and Kalinka Malinka by Ivan Larionov. The show featured a robot (playing the balalaika), one of the team members (playing the dombra), and robot matryoshkas as their backup dancers.
Selamwit Kassaye is a robotics and AI maven from Ethiopia. We met during the Russian Robotics Week and dove right into all things robots, co-bots, and of course, Avengers! She shared many insights about this amazing field. Read on to learn more about our discussion.
Innovative Materials and Robots of All Stripes: ITMO Researchers at the Technosreda Exhibition of Scientific Achievements
For two days, the Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy (VDNKh) in Moscow serves as a portal into the future where everything is possible. Over 100 top-ranked universities and research centers, as well as about 30 Russian tech companies, presented their latest developments: self-driving cars and amphibious flying cars, waste sorting robots and football robots, biochips and artificial muscles, smart technologies and artificial intelligence. Researchers from ITMO’s Infochemistry Scientific Center, Faculty of Physics, and Faculty of Control Systems and Robotics showcased nine advanced products and prototypes at the exhibition.
The International Laboratory of Biomechatronics and Energy-Efficient Robotics has created a prototype of an energy-efficient hopping robot. The design is based on flexible joints and a series elastic actuator.
The robot’s algorithm controls the self-balancing scooter’s motherboard, the human-size robot impresses with its dimensions, weight, and technical solutions. The team has already won the St. Petersburg Open Robotics Competitions, and their next goal is the national stage of the RoboCup.
The robot is used to test new sensorless control algorithms, which provide safety for humans working alongside industrial robots.
The picture demonstrates the FESTO robot vision cell, consisting of a Mitsubishi robot, its auxiliaries, and a protective case, which is used by students as a training platform for working with industrial robots.
ITMO University experts are creating technological assistants for chemical laboratories that will be able to take over all routine work with no human involvement needed. Right now, the first prototypes are already performing the simplest manipulations. In the future, robotic chemists will be able to run their own research for accumulating large amounts of data and performing primary analysis.
