In Kovrov, work is underway to create a robotic complex based on the BMP-3 and a biomorphic robot

The designers of the Kovrov enterprise of the VNII Signal (included in the association “High-Precision Complexes”) are developing a robotic complex based on the BMP-3. In addition to the option with remote control, the project provides for the creation of a fully autonomous machine, it transmits RIA News The message of the general director of the enterprise Vladimir Shashok.


In Kovrov, work is underway to create a robotic complex based on the BMP-3 and a biomorphic robot


"The project" Strike "involves the robotization of the BMP-3. In this case, we do not create the entire robot from scratch along with the chassis, but develop a unified control system and install it on regular samples of armored vehicles that are already in the army. BMP-3 is equipped with a control system with all the necessary nodes and blocks. The result is a multifunctional robotic complex. Target load can be both combat and reconnaissance. The complex can be controlled remotely, we are also exploring the possibility of movement autonomy, ”said Drafts.

According to him, “the advantage of a completely autonomous option is this: first, it moves in radio silence mode, when we do not receive anything from the robot and do not transmit it via radio channels; secondly, automation of routine actions is achieved, for example, for the transportation of goods - the robot remembers the route for the first time, and then runs along it independently. ”

The Director General emphasized that “the possibility of a crew mode of movement also remains. Wanted - a man drove, and where dangerous or any special conditions - rides like a robot. "

Drafts also spoke about the work on the project "Lynx", in which a biomorphic (animal-like) robot is being created.

“Within the framework of one of the projects, the Rys development work, we are creating a multifunctional biomorphic robotic complex. The robot will have four legs, that is, it will look like a kind of four-legged creature, ”he said.

According to the CEO, “three variants of the target load are being considered: an intelligence robot, a combat support robot, and a cargo carrying robot”.

He noted that "the combat robot is likely to be equipped with a machine gun, the installation of an ATGM is possible."

Checker stressed that "in Russia there are no analogues of this project at all." “The work is initiative, being done at the expense of the enterprise,” he added.

        And what is fantastic?
        All kinds of radio-controlled and "teletanks" appeared in the 30s of the last century, in the Union even unmanned combat brigades of T72 were created.
        It is also not so difficult to get a car (tank) to travel along the specified route, only the benefits are not enough if the slightest obstacle or unforeseen situation (which happens almost always, but is not noticeable for a person) violates the established program.
        The solution to the problem would be the introduction of artificial intelligence, so the leading IT corporations are engaged in the solution, which in Russia are not and will not be in the foreseeable future, and not automobile concerns.

          American robots use lidars (laser "radar") so that the robot can see the world around it.



          All existing lidars carry out mechanical scanning, that is, they contain mechanically rotating parts.







          Nothing like that on Russian "robots" NO! Russian "robots" are just remotely controlled toys.

          Recently, the American company IBM introduced the TrueNorth neuroprocessor, which is able to recognize objects (cars, people, etc.) by receiving information from video cameras. Previously, this required thousands of servers with conventional processors.

          TrueNorth - the next generation processor

            Have you read the comments of experts on this 2014 news there? For example.


            "What nonsense? What is the connection between the lidar and this processor?"

            Algorithms of computer vision, including stereo-matching algorithms, have been quite successfully optimized at FPGAs, achieving real-time processing, but so far the lidars have not left the market. And it’s not yet clear how well stereo-vision algorithms can lie on this architecture.

            And so while the results are not impressive, an object detector on qVGA in real time can be obtained even without GPGPU. Especially considering that marketers tactfully kept silent about the recognition accuracy. "

            But what I agree with you that we don’t have that. And it is not clear when it will be.

            $ 21 million has already been invested in the project, + third round of state funding of $ 41 million. and this is ONLY DARPA (SyNAPSE is a DARPA program)
            there is still 7th water on jelly. There is a very large power consumption and, accordingly, heat dissipation

            On a supercomputer, a group of Japanese and German scientists tried to simulate the activity of the human brain. More than 80 thousand processors "thought" for 40 minutes while trying to recreate neural activity lasting 1 second in real time. To simulate the functioning of the brain, “K Computer” had to bind 1,73 billion virtual nerve cells to 10,4 trillion virtual synapses (parts of the neurons directly responsible for transmission of a nerve impulse).

    Recently I wrote about this: The battlefield is not parquet. Legs, or other supports, will require an extremely complex control system to synchronize when moving. it cross country, and even with variable axial loads (for example, when fired), + itif it’s combat, then it must have either an intellect or a communicator to communicate with the operator, + some weapons, + a power plant or a serious battery, + small armor, + a delivery vehicle to the point of use, + time for deployment, and many more such + ++.

    It is interesting, but if the road conditions change between traffic, the mine will explode, what kind of collapse will he take? Will he get up, will he look for a detour, or will he call for help? Imagine a robot drove up to a funnel, called a drone, it flew around the area and gave an alternative route.

    Soon real terminators, endowed with artificial intelligence and extremely tenacious, will appear in the Amer troops. Since the Amerian soldier is a dristoon, they will send robots to melee, thereby solving the problem of courage and courage of personnel. After all, it is clear that a little more technology will allow the creation of armies of inanimate, ruthless and merciless wars. However, we do not even know the current state of affairs; no one has canceled secrecy. And dog-like robots in YouTube are more likely to distract attention. How will Russia respond? It is clear that the answer should be asymmetric, catch-ups are not appropriate in this case.

    The four-legged Big Dog porter robot failed the test, as did its "younger brother" - lighter, quieter, but less heavy-duty - the US Marine Corps refused to take them.
    According to Wikipedia, "The BigDog robot is 0,91 meters long, 0,76 meters high, and weighs 110 kilograms. It is currently capable of traveling over rough terrain at 6,4 km per hour, carrying 154 kg of cargo and climbing 35 degree inclined plane.Its movement is controlled by a computer system that receives data from various sensors.Navigation and balance are also controlled by this system.

    On March 18, 2008, Boston Dynamics released a video about the new generation of BigDog. The video shows the ability of the robot to walk on an ice surface and the ability to restore balance after a side impact.

    At the end of November 2015, the company announced that it would cease further development work on BigDog [2]. Two main reasons were named: the limited capabilities of the robot and too loud unmasking noise, which the developers did not manage to cope with. As a result, the company switched to the Spot robot, a smaller BigDog that runs on a quiet electric motor and is claimed to be more agile ... "

    That is, despite extremely interesting technical solutions and serious research work, the Americans have clearly demonstrated and confirmed the futility of the military use of such "dogs" (at least at this stage of historical development, and before the invention of a super-powerful and compact energy source).

    Ours either hope for another, positive result, or this is another nano-Chubaisization of budget funds. Although, maybe, just words - "What are we worse than people? We will collect our own four-legged carrier. Wipe down, America!"
    Sad if so.
    The dispersion of forces and resources, especially in conditions of their limited nature, has never benefited science and production.
    There are many other tasks outlined by both soldiers and command, beginning with the change of AK74, and ending with the rearmament of the Strategic Missile Forces. And here are some fantasies about four-legged robots for combat use ...
    The worst thing is that if it’s idle talk and fraud, the assailant is now not threatened by either shooting or camp. Despite the fact that the issue directly relates to the defense capabilities of our country.
