Russia to present combat robot

Russia will showcase Platforma-M Combat Robot at an event in Kamchatka on July 26 marking Russian Naval Forces Day.

The robot is planned to provide fire support for an operation against simulated infiltrators during anti-terrorist drills, the press office of the Pacific Fleet reported.

The new robotic attack system together with special military units will show off its capabilities against a simulated enemy.

The Platform-M was first displayed last summer in Russian military drills in Kaliningrad. It is equipped with grenade launchers and Kalashnikov rifles. Along with the rifles and grenade launchers, the Platform-M also features optical-electronic and radio reconnaissance locators that allow it to function covertly at night.

The robot’s developer, Progress Scientific Research Technological Institute of Izhevsk was quoted as saying  in a report this month that the Platform-M can be used for gathering intelligence, for discovering and eliminating stationary and mobile targets, for firepower support, for patrolling and for guarding important sites.

In addition, a naval parade will be held in the event which will involve 15 warships and support vessels of the Kamchatka military force.

Northrop Grumman Unveils Next-Gen Unmanned Ground Vehicle

Northrop Grumman Andros F6 Series http://www.northropgrummaninternational.com/

Northrop Grumman announced that its subsidiary REMOTEC has unveiled the Andros FX ™, a more capable and dexterous unmanned ground vehicle. The vehicle is designed to defeat a wide range of threats, including vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED).

According to World Defense Net, the features of the Andros FX™ are the four track pods that replace the traditional Andros articulators and a new arm design with more lift capacity and greater dexterity by adding roll joints that provide nine degrees of freedom. The unmanned ground vehicle also features updated system electronics, mobility improvements for increased speed and maneuverability, and a new touchscreen operator control unit with 3-D system graphics, advanced manipulator controls and improved user interface.

Walt Werner, director of Northrop Grumman’s REMOTEC said, “Bomb squads have told us what they need most are more capabilities to counter vehicle-borne IEDs.” In accordance to that, the Andros FX™’s operating system provides much greater information to the operator while easing user workload through more interactivity with intelligent payloads such as chemical and radiation sensors. Preset arm positions and the ability to “fly the gripper” make manipulation of objects much easier, faster and more accurate.

Increased cross-functional involvement early in the design phase results in a much lower lifecycle cost as well as a product that can be quickly adapted for a variety of missions, easily upgraded and expanded, and more efficiently maintained, Werner added.

Giant Fighting Robots

Hello Geeky followers, and welcome to another We 3 Geeks blog. Geek Tom here, and in this blog I’m going to be talking about the recent news of what will be the first ever real-life Mech Battle.

American company Megabots Inc. has called a duel between their Megabot MK2 and the Japanese Suidobashi Heavy Industry’s Kuratas mech, for an as yet undecided date in 2016.Suidobashi have not only accepted the duel, but have upped the stakes, by not only calling the Megabot MK2 “Super American for just sticking big guns on it”, but also saying that they want to include melee combat in the duel, making it more than just a ‘pistols at dawn’ affair.

Putting all the bravado, PR and “this furthers the advancement of engineering accomplishment” to one side, this is AWESOME. For geeks everywhere, being able to hop into the pilot/driving seat of a large (we wouldn’t class these two in the ‘giant’ category!) robot or mech with the sole purpose fighting others is a dream come true. Heck, put the fighting to one side, just being able to ride around in one would be a dream come true.
I mean, what’s not to love about the idea of being at the controls of a heavy piece of machinery, with the power at your fingertips to defend or destroy innocent onlookers as they watch on in awe (or fear) of your capabilities and presence. All whilst potentially being flanked by an opponent, in their own arsenal of heavy hardware?

This isn’t something that has been missed by Hollywood either, as in recent years there have been films that have either incorporated or been solely about this premise.
While James Cameron’s Avatar was about the mentally controlled alien clone bodies and their interaction with said alien natives, the Navi, the human marines had at their disposal a bipedal mech, the Amplified Mobility Platform (or AMP), which is very reminiscent of the units from the old MechWarrior PC game series.

Meanwhile, Pacific Rim is focused on the gargantuan, (mostly) twin piloted Jaegers, humanoid mechs that were created to defend the planet from the monstrous Kaiju who are attacking from another dimension.
And while they’re not mechs per se, the Transformers movie franchise has reignited a brand which is all about an age-old war between 2 factions of giant alien robots, that just happen to be able to reconfigure their bodies into vehicles, beasts and even weapons.

But long before Hollywood took a real interest in the genre, we were given our first foray into real life fighting robots back in the 90’s, in the form of the BBC series Robot Wars, which pitted lots of small garage-built remote controlled robots against obstacle courses, each other and the series’ own “house” robots. While the contestants in the first few seasons were often little more than armoured remote control cars, in a variety of weird and wacky designs, the house robots would sport an array of weapons including flamethrowers, chainsaws, circle saws, ploughs, and vice like crushing pincers (some were even touted to be able to tow a car; Dead Metal and Sir Killalot).

As the series progressed, the complexity and sheer ingenuity of the contestants’ robots improved as more and more of them came with built in gimmicks. The most prolific of these gimmicks was the Self Righting Mechanism, often referred to as the “Srimech”, which would allow an upturned robot to flip itself the right way round mid-bout and be able to continue combat.
Chaos ensued every week, and at its peak some of the contestants even managed to show up the house robots, as well as exhibiting some true feats of combative robotic engineering.

And that’s what this all comes back to, combative robotic engineering.
On one side the Megabot MK2, a hydraulic heavy twin-piloted mech that gets its primary locomotion from a pair of caterpillar treads, and has a pair of high pressure paintball guns at the ends of its arms, which gives it a very MechWarrior vibe.
On the other side is the Kuratas, a sophisticated computerised operating system built into a centaur type mech, with wheels at the end of each of its four legs, a fully armoured single-man cockpit, and a plethora of customisable weapon options (including a big riot shield) at its disposal.
The big problem facing both of these units is that while today’s robotics tech is great for setting up manufacture plants, where each robot is specifically designed for one task and is generally bolted to the floor it sits on, it’s nowhere near the proper level and complexity to create fast mobile mechs that can be quickly adapted to different scenarios.

This battle, when it happens, isn’t going to be the fast high octane action portrayed by Hollywood, it’s going to be a hell of a lot slower, with a lot less action, where one strike can cause a malfunction. Kuratas is heavily reliant on its computers, and Megabot MK2 is only as fast as its hydraulic pressure and is reliant on its twin pilots being able to operate in unison.
Don’t mistake this as being dismissive. I’m really looking forward to what both combatants bring to the duel, and how well each operates in a combat situation, and what this could turn into, but I’m enough of a realist to know that this is real life and not a Hollywood green screen.

This is Geek Tom signing off, saying Stay Geeky!

Sony’s next big thing is camera drones

 

This article titled “Sony’s next big thing is camera drones” was written by Samuel Gibbs, for theguardian.com on Thursday 23rd July 2015 10.22 UTC

Sony is launching a company to produce camera drones in a partnership with the autonomous driving startup ZMP.

The new drone manufacturer, Aerosense, will use Sony’s imaging, sensing and networking technology from its smartphone range to create aerial surveillance and reconnaissance drones for businesses.

ZMP will provide the robotics expertise to make them fly. Sony will not sell drones but will lease them for “measuring, surveying, observing, and inspecting”.

Drone users face jail if they ‘recklessly endanger an aircraft in flight’

Large civil drones capable of carrying high-powered photography and video equipment have proven useful in the movie and television industry, but their use in construction and other industries for surveying dangerous or difficult to reach areas is in its infancy.

Drones are expected to be one of the growth areas in electronics, as the sensors and technologies needed to sustain stable flight have become cheaper, making them a viable device for both business and consumer products.

The availability of basic consumer drones for less than £50 has caused issues around privacy and safety, with aircraft near-misses becoming an increasing concern.

Legislation over drone use has held back their development. In the UK drones with cameras must not be flown within 50m of a building or a person or within 150 metres of a built-up area and kept below 400 feet. The drone must always be flown within 500m of the pilot and within their line of sight.

In the US, where Amazon and other companies are attempting to develop drone technology for delivery services among other uses, rules governing drone flight are under revision by the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA).

Medical supplies were successfully delivered to a remote clinic via drone in an FAA-approved trial last week.

Sony is hoping that its drone company will be ahead of the curve for industrial use, competing with Yamaha and others in Japan and companies such as Australian firm Flirtey on the global stage.
