TSU has created a robot scout, resistant to poisons and radiation
Researchers at the International Laboratory of Technical Vision Systems have designed for the nuclear industry a robot capable of surveying an area for chemical and radiation contamination. The automated platform has a high throughput and can operate without recharging the batteries for up to ten hours.
– The robot is designed to assess the potential hazards of various objects and areas, – says Vladimir Syryamkin, one of the main developers, the head of the International Laboratory of Technical Vision Systems. – The presence of a gas analyzer and other measuring equipment makes it possible to perform express analysis, to determine the qualitative and quantitative composition of mixtures in the air, and to identify various hazardous substances, including explosives.
