“Without robotics and GPS / GLONASS signals, such robotics will be able to navigate in space, independently choose the route of movement, recognize objects from the video image, conduct reconnaissance, interact with UAVs and other robotic complexes. At the same time, the machines will remain practically imperceptible for electronic intelligence and other means of detection, since they will have almost zero radiation level, the agency told the corporation.

“We have made significant advances in research in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and intelligent automated control systems for robotics, as well as technical“ vision. ” They taught robotics to “communicate” with each other, help each other and solve problems together, ”said Alexander Kalinin, director of the defense industry department.

The company's specialists believe that "ground robots of the new generation will be able to navigate in space even with the loss of navigation system signals, as well as recognize objects." According to them, “with the help of SLAM technologies (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping, a method of simultaneous navigation and mapping), robots will be able to create three-dimensional maps of the terrain along which they move.”

Earlier, in October, it was reported that the defense complex had completed work on the Unicum technology, which is capable of automatically controlling up to 10 of robotics units simultaneously.

    “New-generation ground robots will be able to navigate in space even with the loss of navigation system signals, as well as recognize objects”

    Science and technology are moving forward. Without developed science and modern industry, nothing good shines for us; it is useful to realize this. I wish you success in your work.

      these will be real robots, without an operator, we must quickly put such systems on the su-25 (24), and we will get shock drones - robots

      Robots are already in the near future, it is necessary to roll in money, although in this case it will be worse.

      As well as a numerical advantage, but again the means of protection should be on the level!

      If the industry is tightened up a bit, then I don’t see any problems for using such equipment in the near future. Not all that complicated.

        It is not a matter of industry, but of the general level of development of human technology. So far, people are simply unable to create a robot with artificial intelligence that could compare on the battlefield with humans.

          In this case, there is no such need. A combat robot is able to solve tasks that a person is not capable of, on the other hand, a person is able to solve tasks that a robot is not capable of. Here, the greater difficulty is to break the habitual stereotype of the person’s thinking when deciding on the possibility of the combat use of such devices, but this task is in my opinion much more complicated than creating a really combat-ready robot. The inertia of thinking in a person is very high, it is difficult to quickly break it, and here problems are possible, there is such a practice.

            Did not answer correctly.

            The robot does not assume the necessary level of responsibility. Strength man inside technology risks his life and also answers with his life.

            In a robot, it’s much easier to sniff out external supposedly necessary. Yes, and it’s easier to kill them.

      From what ?! Microelectronics not only strides, but sweeps by leaps and bounds
      and it is quite possible that in 10-15 years the equipment will be quite independent!
      And a bit of humor. While in Europe and America, people fought among themselves on bows and spears,
      in Russia, then still Russia, robotic pregeneration complexes were already in use:
      Remember ?! In the movie "Frost" they showed more!Remember ?! In the movie "Frost" they showed more!

      Robots, in principle, do not replace humans, but complement them.

    In the defense industry complex, work has been completed on the Unicum technology, which is capable of automatically controlling up to 10 units of robotics simultaneously.
    The work is completed, it is necessary to implement! What is in the article is the next step. I am not yet talking about the independent decision of the machine to open fire, but here are a dozen "self-thinking carts" for RChBZ, for example, combined into one organism - this is already a very good step and a great help. Adoption and production, unfortunately, does not depend on the defense industry.

    In my opinion, I said that if we should kick ours properly, they will catch up and overtake everyone and everything. The main thing is to give purpose and encouragement.

    Sapper robots are tested and good. Personally, I am alarmed by robots with machine guns. I understand that progress, but ... I'm afraid of these "terminators"

      It is logical. A robot with weapons is still dangerous. Only a person can make a decision to shoot. I think it is very far from being used in combat. Or in areas subject to full "termination". For the robot cannot yet distinguish a moving object from its own. I understand that many will argue, but this is so. Even if you equip the fighters (people) with devices for identifying friend or foe, they (devices) will quickly appear on the other side. Plus, the robot doesn't have human ingenuity. These cans will be easily destroyed, and with a skillful approach, they will be reformatted against the attacking side.
      As a fire support, under the guidance and under the guise of people it is quite possible. The development of robotics cannot be stopped. But before the appearance of the terminators, it is still incredible how far away they think.

        You are considering the spherical situation of horse breeding in an airless space. Next to the robots will be people who make decisions in difficult situations for the electronic brain. The robot will perfectly cope with a simple task - to move warlock to that hill and destroy everything that is not identified as a landscape.

          I agree. But on the way out to that hill there can be not only opponents, but also ours or civilians. Therefore, he wrote that either complete termination (annihilation) of everything that moves, or control from a person. The robot itself can’t.

            When your unit attacks enemy positions, there can be no civilians between your positions and the positions of the enemy, and if someone happens to be random, then he will die regardless of whether the robots attack or people.

    I immediately remembered the parable of R. Sheckley “The Guardian Bird”)))
    ... recognize objects by video image, conduct reconnaissance, interact with drones ..
    Taught robotics to "communicate" with each other, help each other and jointly solve problems

    Add an odor and heat scanner and you have a swarm-type system, ideal for destroying an adversary at a lower technological level.

    Let's just say, as it is shown in the photo, it is enough, with the help of a lever, to simply turn it over and it is already a useless heap of iron. Then delve into the brains (craftsmen will always be found) and now you have a combat robot. I think that in such systems self-destruction (charge) should be provided, although it will do in the role of a suicide bomber.

      Rummaging through the brains of even simple consumer electronics without documentation, the problem is often solved only by reverse engineering methods. About systems protected from such unauthorized actions, I generally keep quiet.

        Alexander, for you, maybe a problem, but for a specialist, most often it’s not a problem at all. I just saw how the car ECU is reflashed without knowing the circuit, and everything works. The element base consists of various processors, knowing their work, you can connect to it without any problems. Of course this is not a matter of minutes, but if the issue of combat use arises, then the issue of flashing will be resolved

    It even takes horror when you think that it will be possible to face such a piece of iron, having one "Kalash" in your hands ... I hope our "clever men" will come up with and how to carry them into components ...

    Well, what I see immediately from the tasks
    so this is reconnaissance and target designation.
    That is, to peek and give coordinates for shooting / highlight the target.
