On the ISS decided to send a legless robot

the International space station in 2024 will send a new robot Teledroid. It will replace Fedor, who has previously worked experimentally on the ISS.

Recall, Fedor went into space on 22 August 2019 on the spacecraft “Soyuz MS-14”. Aboard the ISS, he was tested in Autonomous mode and under control of the astronauts. September 7, Fedor returned to Earth.

the Following robot created in the framework of the project “Teledroid”. The project involves the creation of an anthropomorphic robot with no legs who will work on the outer surface of the ISS. In February 2020, it was reported that completed the conceptual and technical design of this robotic complex.

As told RIA “Novosti”, the Executive Director of the NGO “Android technology” Eugene Dudorov, Teledroid will assist the astronauts during their work on the ISS external surface. To control the robot will be from the Ground or from the station. “It is clear that the robot is not a substitute astronaut, but it will Supplement and help people,” — said Dudorov.

a full-time basis for the Teledroid will be a Scientific-energy module of the ISS. It is on the surface which the robot will be able to carry out the research work. Teledroid is also possible to consolidate the European the robotic arm ERA. With her help the robot can move along the surface of the ISS.

As said Dudorov, at the end of the flight to the ISS Fedor, it was decided to almost completely rewrite the terms of reference. The results of the application of Theodore in orbit showed that a promising robot it is necessary to “load” a set of tasks that he could perform in Autonomous mode. For example, to recognize objects, to build the trajectory of movement to the object, move objects.
