Avatar developed for KamAZ unmanned vehicles


The Russian company engaged in the creation of heavy trucks KAMAZ, has developed a special module that allows you to turn the truck into a drone. The device is called "Avatar."


This was reported on the official website of the state corporation Rostec.

"Avatar" is a module designed for autonomous driving and installed on the roof of the cab. It allows you to turn a regular truck into an unmanned vehicle. In order for this module to be connected to the truck, the latter must have an automatic transmission, an electronic accelerator pedal, an electric power steering and an electronically controlled braking system. Remote control of vehicle systems is carried out using the CAN bus.

The device is currently being tested on a KamAZ-43118 automobile. Algorithms for making managerial decisions are worked out, the operation of the software is checked. The autonomous control system is not tested at the stands, but in real conditions.



The KamAZ Scientific and Technical Center started developing the Avatar concept in 2018, and the very next year, the Innovative Car Service developed the module itself.

Rostec Executive Director Oleg Yevtushenko noted the importance of the project for the automotive industry as a whole:

The development of unmanned vehicles, including freight, is one of the main trends in the automotive industry. Such solutions are designed to optimize road traffic, reduce transportation costs and the number of accidents.

      The second option without worries about aerodynamics. If you develop this topic, as a trailed car for a tractor may be a good option. Traction is distributed on wheels, dynamics, maneuverability, etc.

      The name Avatar was in the project of the Fedor robot, before they contacted all kinds of Roscosmosm, they made exactly the same robots for the Ministry of Emergencies and the like. It suits them better, an anthropomorphic robot, at the same time not subjective, so an avatar without legs is normal. Fedor without legs, some kind of horror ..

        No. The theme was called "Rescuer." After “they got in touch with all kinds of Roscosmosmos,” the topic began to be called “The Tester”.

        Fedor is an experimental product. The next product that will fly into orbit and will be connected to the ERA is called the Teledroid.

          Why not? The developers themselves call it an avatar. First of all, I associate the name "avatar" with this robot, it conveys the essence of the project well. Fedor is associated with exhibitions and PR of Rogozin, in principle, PR is also good, and Fedor will walk perfectly apart from astronautics. Now I googled, it turns out that TsNIImash was engaged in this robot in 2011, even before Rogozin.

            It is not that this project is not called that way, but the functionality of this product is telecontrol with memorization of actions.

            You see only what you want to see. The Tester experiment at the ISS was completed successfully. All data on the topic has been received and will be used in subsequent products.

            You have mixed up with the project from TsNII RTK - "Cosmorobot". Developments on this project will be used in the topic "Teledroid".

              Cosmorobot is another project recently closed by the leadership of Roscosmos. TsNIImash worked with the NPO Android Robotics manufacturer Avatar.

              According to the astronaut, in November 2011, when the SAR-400 was tested in Star City at the Cosmonaut Training Center, operators used it to tighten screws, open the hatches of a ground-based copy of the ISS Russian module, and work with the Vykhod training complex, on which future astronauts work out spacewalk.

                Read the label on the SAR-400 carefully lol



                And yes, research on the Cosmorobot is not closed, and the developments are used in the Teledroid, I wrote about this above.

                  Stop flogging nonsense. The space robot is closed. An avatar in the theme of space since 2011, when Rogozin was not in the project there.

                    Only in your head lol In reality, the Teledroid experiment on the outer surface of the ISS is already in a year.

                        Carefully read the RIA message from last August:

                        https://ria.ru/20190801/1557061652.html

                        Quote: “The development of a robot to help astronauts was carried out by the Rocket and Space Corporation Energia (the developer of Russian spacecraft and the operator of the Russian segment of the ISS), together with the specialized Central Research Institute of Robotics and Technical Cybernetics (TsNII RTK) and the NPO Android Technique (creator of the robot Fedor ").

                        Feels Rogozinovskaya school. Slander and lie in every phrase, and also blame me for the fact that I do not understand something, or do not speak correctly. All messages are correct for me. You are all false. And on other sites you do the same thing. Because of this kind of rot, Rogozin must be sent as a reminder so that his behavior model is not copied.

    “A bright future has come, unmanned vehicles carry goods and citizens, automated production drives cheap vodka and chlorine, Fedor robots deliver drinks and wipe dirty places, wives stopped cutting men for unbeaten shelves. Idyll. And then in the sun, a flash and um front covers all this shop to all the Uryupinsk. Now we sit, pour again ourselves, think about how to nail the shelf and whether we need it ... "
