How Robot FEDOR Passed Exams
December 14, 2016 15:58

Robot FEDOR, engineered by the Advanced Studies Foundation for the Russian Emergency Ministry, has passed the final test series at the obstacle course in enclosed laboratory space of the Humanoid Machines R&D in Magnitogorsk.

The present design enables FEDOR (i.e. Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research) to:
  1) do forward and side splits;
  2) look down at its feet and vertically up;
  3)  crawl on its belly, move on all fours, and get up after a fall;
  4) move around a building, climb up the stairs, and keep balance even on uneven steps;
 5) take and leave the driver's seat in a vehicle, just like a human does;
6) drive in the master-slave mode and standalone regime;
7) handle a wide range of household appliances, power tools and special equipment of EMERCOM rescuers.

During exams of November 2016 the robot demonstrated its ability to insert a key into the keyhole, fight fire with a fire extinguisher, take a seat in a car, handle a hand saw, as well as soldering and welding machines.
All this meets the objectives previously set by developers: the robot should operate standalone in urban infrastructure, move across rough terrain, give first aid and drive a vehicle.

What is Known about FEDOR
Formerly known under the name of Avatar, the robot has got a new name - FEDOR - the Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research.
In the future, FEDOR will be put to good use not on the Earth only, but as an astronaut as well. The main emphasis will be on improving its battery life for longer standalone work on the spaceship, as well as increasing the accuracy of performing tasks under remote control by an operator on the Earth.
With the height of 184 cm, FEDOR has weight that varies from 106 to 160 kg, depending on attached plug-in modules and optional equipment.
