Dmitry Rogozin, the official curator of the military and space industries, published a tweet on his promising domestic robot in his Twitter. He was named FEDOR (Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research – Final experimental demonstration object of research). The robot is the brainchild of the robotics department at the Foundation for Advanced Studies.
The Vice-Premier instructed to begin work on preparing Fedor for operation in the space program – by 2021 he will enter the crew of a manned spacecraft of a new generation. To this end, in the shortest possible time, they will form a new design bureau, which will unite young cadres in one project under the direction of the general designer EA Mikrin.
Rogozin did not miss the opportunity to pose his political opponents, joking about the country with a “torn to shreds economy,” which creates so perfect robots that they “are taken into astronauts.” The Android differs not only in its high degree of mobility, but also in the ability to interpret commands for optimal performance.
In the demo video, Fyodor awkwardly, but confidently realizes the task of “fell down – wrung out,” manages a car and performs mechanical tasks. In the future, he will be able to take control of the ship on himself and lead him to the goal, replacing the crew in difficult conditions. The development of the details is entrusted to the specialists of Energia Corporation. Queen.
