The second robotics festival is over in Moscow. The team of the Ufa State Aviation Technical University (UGATU) has taken part in the largest forum in sphere of innovational technologies, robotics and mechatronics.
The festival-2010 gathered more than 100 teams fr om 25 Russian regions. The forum was held in three main directions: general robotics, professional robotics, innovations and business.
The team of UGATU faculty of aviation engines, consisting of young pedagogues Ruslan Yamaliev, Nikolai Senushkin, Vladislaw Paramonov, undergraduate Andre Sukhanov and student Roman Zavyalov, has taken part in the contest in the direction of the professional robotics, wh ere robots were designed with the help of the elements of industrial automation.
“Our team has designed the most economically profitable robot” – Nikolai Senushkin tells – “The prices in the professional category start from 150 thousand rubles. But we’ve designed and manufactured the robot, which cost was just 17 thousand rubles. At that the robot has carried out all tasks of the contest and some of these tasks even better than its more expensive “colleagues”. The wheeled robot is designed on the four-wheeled chassis, its control system is based on the “MicroChip” controller, the intellectual robot system is organized on the base of the notebook “Acer” and the software is written in Delphi 7.0. At the qualification stage our robot was the second on the first task and the third on the second task among nine competitors”.
The UGATU team has received the certificate-invitation to the forum “Innovations and technical art – SELIGER-2010”.
