TOMSK, November 27. / Engineers of the Tomsk and Kyoto (Japan) universities have created the world's first system that will allow developers of software for robots-androids to create software without having your own robot. Dmitriy Yakushin, the author of the project and Tomsk engineer, reported about it to TASS.
"For the first time, you can develop software for robots-androids via the Internet: in the framework of our project, we have created a special installation that will enable to experience the software without buying an expensive robot. The web application makes it possible to load the software in a real robot whereas stationary cameras and sensors of android show that the test is passed successfully and how much time it took to achieve the goal," the engineer said.
He explained that he carried out a project for two years together with a Japanese student during the master’s course under the program of double degrees between Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics (TUSUR) and the Ritsumeikan University (Kyoto).
The complex includes a testing robot /currently this is an android of Darwin model/ and testing site, which is located in Kyoto. By loading the developed software into the robot via a special website, the author of the program will be able to observe the progress of testing through it on the test ground of size 2x1.5 meters, which allows you to check how the robot performs its task.
According to the developer, the project solves two tasks. On the one hand, those who are interested in developing software for humanoid robots can do this without purchasing expensive equipment. On the other hand, the test results are openly published, and developers from around the world will be able to solve the current problems of robotics, based on research of the colleagues.
The system works in test mode, now it is used by more than 40 developers from all around the world, including Germany, India, Russia, France and Japan.
