The Russian promising robotic platform “Marker” during the tests confirmed its ability to force rivers by wading into a reservoir with a depth of more than 0.8 metres, according to the Candidate of Technical Sciences, Executive Director of the NGO “Android Technology” Yevgeny Dudorov.
“As part of the acceptance tests of the ‘Marker’ platform taking place in the Chelyabinsk region, the robot confirmed the declared characteristics for overcoming obstacles, including overcoming a ford with a depth of more than 0.8 metres,” Dudorov said.
As reminded, the robot was developed by the “Android Technology” company together with the Russian Foundation for Advanced Research Projects. The robotic complex weighing about 3 tonnes can be equipped with various weapons. Earlier, the Marker robotic platform was tested at the Vostochny Cosmodrome as a security robot.
According to the Head of “Roscosmos”, Dmitry Rogozin, these complexes can be used as part of security structures as devices that ensure the safety of cosmodromes, enterprises and other objects of national importance. The development has the most advanced autonomous movement skills in Russia with object recognition based on artificial intelligence technologies. The platform’s autonomy is ensured by a modular multispectral vision system, in which data processing is carried out by neural network algorithms.
