Android robot ready for war

37



The American company Boston Dynamics has published a video of the latest version of its robot PETMAN, which is a copy of a man. PETMAN imitates human movement with high accuracy. In addition, the robot has a variety of different sensors and sensors, allowing to evaluate the safety and convenience of special equipment.

Now PETMAN can walk at a fairly quick pace on level and rough terrain, including stairs, pits, and low barriers. All this is necessary to check the costumes of chemical protection, but can also be used to create an army of combat androids.

Previously, Boston Dynamics became famous for a small four-wheeled robot that jumps over fences. Projects are being worked on by the Department of Defense United States Department of Advanced Studies (DARPA).

    The video looks like a fake, it’s a very small segment without a suit, the rest of the time a person could completely replace it .... I wonder how many batteries are hung up to it, so that it works outside the laboratory)

      By the way, without a suit, areas not covered by armor, covered by another coating. Not visible working mechanics. So, there may well be an advertising move. And the question arises, why is it tied to the crossbars with extensions, so as not to fall?

        I wouldn’t be so malicious! Now, so far, they have a good result, but who knows what will happen tomorrow? It all starts with Malova. UAV design is a prime example.

        You are absolutely right not to fall. The fact is that human walking is essentially a constant balancing in the fall. On a swinging moving treadmill, it is almost impossible to simulate the control of balance mathematically, and it is not even necessary - after all, this "terminator" is just a dummy for checking "chemgondons" in motion. Judge for yourself, it's not the same to plant a Negro there to check the strength and tightness smile

          - you are not quite right - with the help of a new mathematical discipline - the theory of dissipative systems, which studies dynamic systems that ARE AWAY FROM EQUILIBRIUM (it was especially emphasized that the parallels should be drawn with yours:

          constant balancing in the fall
          - the task is already quite possible. And it seems that the robot walks this way is already quite similar to a human gait - it just looks like putting the new theory into practice. The author of the theory is a Belgian scientist of Russian origin I. Prigogine, Brussels University. For the theory he was awarded the Nobel Prize.

            The theory of dissipative systems was developed in relation to nonequilibrium thermodynamic systems. Ultimately, the kinetic energy of motion can of course be somehow reduced to thermal energy, but this is an extremely difficult, practically impossible task. I think its use here is inappropriate, that's why the "terminator" was suspended. Another problem is the speed of computations, which may not be enough when modeling attractors (sets of chaotic trajectories).

      Look carefully at how it turns, the axis of the joint is clearly visible. And how it spreads its arms. It may well be.

          For "battles" in the field, this robot is suitable only for ambush actions. Move along the unique Russian field, with a lot of holes. bushes, potholes, etc., with such a narrow chassis as in the video = the robot cannot. He is simply DOED. And when he tipped over, what will he shout? .. call mom? It is good for ambushes. For movement, no.

    10.07.2012/2014/400. In XNUMX, it is planned to put into orbit the Russian humanoid robot-cosmonaut SAR-XNUMX. Android will become part of the ISS team, and in the future can go on exploration of the moon and Mars. The robot-cosmonaut repeats the operator’s movements and is able to autonomously perform simple tasks, for example, tighten screws and nuts.
    Cosmonaut Sergey Avdeev believes that androids cannot replace a person, a robot is a tool with which a person learns the environment. Also, according to astronauts, the SAR-400 will be a very useful robot. At the end of 2011, the android was tested in Star City at the Cosmonaut Training Center. Then the SAR-400, remotely controlled, tightened the screws and nuts, opened the hatches and went into the free space from the ground copy of the ISS Russian module, just like astronauts do.
    Oleg Saprykin, head of the manned programs TsNIIMash of Roscosmos, noted that SAR-400 will be the first Russian cosmonaut in the last 20 years. None of the previously developed robots have ever gone into space. The Americans have already sent their android-cosmonaut to the ISS, the Japanese are preparing to send the Asimo robot, and the Germans are still at the development stage of their robot-cosmonaut Justin.
    The creators of the Russian SAR-400 NPO Android Technique noted that domestic development differs from Western robots in its ability to convey to the operator a whole range of sensations, including tactile ones, and not just image and sound. The pressure on the surface of the manipulator is transmitted to the operator’s joystick, said Andrey Nosov, the head of the Moscow-based Android Technique NGO. The only unsolved problem for the development of distant planets with the help of astronaut robots is the signal transmission speed, if the light goes to the moon for 5 seconds, then it goes to Mars for 15 minutes.

      as there are no small-sized power sources.
      At the last meeting of the Public Council of the Chairman of the Military-Industrial Commission, the development of domestic weapons was discussed in the context of promising threats for our country and the launch of the Foundation for Advanced Research - a completely new structure of the domestic defense industry. Opening the meeting, Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of the military-industrial complex Dmitry Rogozin said that the urgent issue that remains to be resolved in the first place is the creation of the most robotic military equipment. This is explained by the fact that the indigenous population of Russia has reduced to a critical limit, and our country, as before, is the largest in the world in terms of territory and the natural resource concentrated in it. According to experts, the priority resources are not only hydrocarbons and minerals, but also clean water, clean and fertile soil, clean forests. All of this is still in abundance. And who knows, maybe it is precisely for these riches that they will have to fight with weapons in their hands in the XNUMXst century, first of all. Who will defend the Fatherland? As Dmitry Rogozin emphasized, the warrior of the Russian army of tomorrow should replace five to ten warriors of the present time. And to do this is possible only if cyborgs come to the aid of the soldier. And what was fantasy yesterday was already formulated as tactical and technical tasks..A number of programs have been outlined in robotics: the creation of power armor known as exoskeletons, the development of underwater robots for various purposes, the design of a series of unmanned aerial vehicles. Into robotic innovations fits the intensification of work on military network technologies. It is planned to create wireless power transmission technologies. Nikola Tesla was engaged in experiments in this direction a hundred years ago. New technologies will realize his ideas on an industrial scale. And this is just a small list of what was voiced at the meeting... But will we be able to catch up with the United States, where drones have long been used both as spy planes and as attack aircraft, and exoskeletons are already coming into service with their army? Let us recall that the most high-tech robots in the initial period of space exploration were our "Lunokhod". And the first combat strike drones began to be made also in the USSR. Russian specialists have recently created the SАR-400 robot. It is 163 cm tall and is a torso with two "arms" - manipulators, which are equipped with special sensors that allow the operator to feel an object touched by an iron hand. SAR-400 can perform many functions - from flying into space to performing remote surgical operations. And in military affairs he has no value at all. He can be a sapper, a scout, and a repairman. By the way, in terms of its tactical and technical characteristics and working capabilities, our android surpasses all foreign counterparts, including American ones http://www.rg.ru/2013/03/28/kiborgi-site.html

        I want to answer immediately to all opponents, I am not against robotic technology, I just wanted to express the idea that the android robot is not just the future, it is a very distant future. No robot can replace human mobility. Robots and remotely controlled cars are needed, but these are specialized and different machines, an android for today, it is still an experiment aimed at a very distant future. To whom, I believe that 50-100 years is a very distant future.

    UAV




    Tu-143 “Flight” is a Soviet reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
    Designed for tactical reconnaissance in the frontline at a depth of 60-70 km by photographing and television reconnaissance of area targets and individual routes, as well as monitoring the radiation situation along the flight route. It is part of the VR-3 complex.
    The use of the complex was tested in the 4th Center for Combat Use of the Air Force

    В 1970-1980s 950 units were produced. [5]

    The upgraded device with new intelligence equipment was named Tu-243.
    http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D2%F3-143



    Tu-243 (VR-3D, "Flight-D") [1] - reconnaissance UAV. The first flight made in 1970.

    Serially produced since 1994. Adopted in 1999. [1] It is produced at the KumAPP plant in Kumertau. [2] It is a modernized version of the Tu-143. Compared with the Tu-143, the composition of reconnaissance equipment has been completely updated. Reconnaissance equipment, equipped in two versions, allows surveillance day and night.

    In the first version, a panoramic aerial camera of the PA-402 type and the Aist-M television reconnaissance system with real-time information transmission via the Trassa-M radio link are installed.

    In the second version: PA-402 and the Zima-M infrared reconnaissance system with information transmission along the “M-Highway”. In addition to transmission to the ground, information is recorded on board the UAV. To facilitate the search for UAVs, a Marker type beacon is installed. The design of the UAV glider did not undergo any significant changes, while maintaining the Tu-143 UAV power plant.

    In 2008, a competition was organized for the modernization of the Tu-143 and Tu-243. [3] The winner of the competition was recognized KB Tupolev. [4]

    I have not heard about the receipts in the US Army. In my opinion, it is only being developed. Although I could be wrong.


    And here we have:

    The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is currently developing combat equipment “Fighter-21” for the military personnel of the Ground Forces, Airborne Forces and the Marine Corps, work on its creation is planned to be completed by 2015

    The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is currently developing combat equipment “Fighter-21” for the military personnel of the Ground Forces, Airborne Forces and the Marine Corps, work on its creation is planned to be completed by 2015, a representative of the 3rd Central Scientific Research Institute (CRI) of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation said on Tuesday. Associate Professor Vladimir Boyko. “The“ second generation ”kit will include systems of destruction, protection, control, life support and energy supply,” Boyko said at a conference at the international exhibition of security systems “Interpolitech-2009” in Moscow. According to Boyko, the set of combat equipment being created will have no analogues in the world in its effectiveness. Moreover, the existing set of combat equipment of the "first generation" is already superior to Western models in some respects, in particular, in terms of protection.

    According to experts, the new kit will be lighter than the previous one by 14 kilograms, its total weight will drop from the current 36 kilograms to 22, RIA Novosti reports. “Currently, the development of armored material using nanotechnology is underway, new materials will appear in the coming years,” Boyko said. “Elements of exoskeletal structures (a metal frame that removes unnecessary stress from the human muscles) will be introduced into the kit,” he added.

    In fact, the whole anecdote is that humanoid machines themselves, that is, androids, have existed since the middle of the 17th century and no one needs the fuck without a control system. Pay attention to the hefty cabinets that are connected to the robot with thick loops? Cabinets are the brains of the software system. potential like a rat. With all the ensuing problems. The idea used in the film "surrogates" is more promising if a way is found to reliably protect the communication channels

    The fact that the developers do not stand still is good. To test chemical suits, to bring coffee to the officer, he brought cartridges in the trenches - for this he probably will do. But as a fighter, of course I like to joke myself, but not so much. One EMP mine, or EMP explosion in the air (forgot how the rocket is called) or, at worst, the "Knapsack" installation. And that's it, they came, the "brave" Sherminators "are dancing the" jig "because of BSoD.
