The main current project is the wheeled android robot Axino controlled from any web browser from any place of the World. It means that robot can be used like simplest avatar. The key feature and purpose of the project is a low cost allowing Axino to enter into the consumer market. This aim is achieved thanks to know-how level design in mechanics, algorithms, production technology and close cooperation with Chinese manufacturers .
Robot functions correspond to the functions of "smart home" and remote presence robot with hands. It can be considered also as the simplest version of avatar.
The robot will have open APIs for third-party software.
The robot has two cameras, four microphones, two speakers, electronic compass, gyroscope, inclinomer, capacitive touch sensors, four ultrasonic distance sensors, the industry standard network DCON commands in ASCII code with the possibility of increasing the number and type of sensors and input-output modules. Internal control of the robot performed entirely in modules distributed control system RealLab! of NL and RD series, see for details http://reallab.ru .
Robot arm has 11 degrees of freedom, including 6 degrees for the hand, head with two degrees of freedom , 4-wheel chassis with two engines, the possibility of lifting and lowering the torso 50 cm, standard ports for connecting a monitor, keyboard, mouse. The full height of the robot is 135 cm.
Current status and content of the project can be seen from the results published in the company news page http://community.sk.ru/net/1110270/b/news/.
The second project is the RLDA is PID controller using nonparametric plant model. The main difference from analogues is nonparametric numerical spline plant model using experimental characteristics of the object that is used instead of the analytical model. This achieves an unprecedented high control quality during the auto tuning, which is independent of the simplifications inherent in the analytical models.
PID controller is used for a variety of control systems, including high-speed mechanisms for controlling robots.
