On September 13, 2021, the leaders and members of the Russian, Japanese and Thai teams of the international project «Informational system for management of flood and land slide disaster areas using a distributed heterogeneous robotic team» held an online working meeting as part of a series of periodic online meetings every three months. During the previous meeting, held on June 28, the collaborators presented the results of their scientific research over the past three months, discussed the current intermediate results of the project and exchanged ideas for its development.
Three countries are taking part in the international project: Russia, Thailand and Japan. Head of the Laboratory of Intelligent Robotic Systems (LIRS) of the Institute of Information Technology and Intelligent Systems (ITIS), Professor Evgeni Magid is the leader of the Russian national team, as well as the CEO of the entire trilateral project covering four universities.
Today Evgeni Magid, Assistant Professor of the Department of Intelligent Robotics Roman Lavrenov and Research Assistant Ramil Safin made reports on the simulations developed in LIRS in Gazebo, the design of new graphical interfaces for controlling the PX4-LIRS UAV and the Servosila Engineer mobile robot, and improved protocols for exchanging data between heterogeneous groups robots. In turn, the professors of the Japanese and Thai teams presented their own developments in recent years.
The teams of the three countries of the project are actively involved in the preparation of the 5th International Symposium on Swarm Behavior and Bio-Inspired Robotics SWARM, which will be held on January 25-27, 2022 in Beppu, Japan, in a mixed format. Professor Magid will speak at the symposium as an invited speaker with a presentation on «e-ASIA Joint Research Program: Recent progress in development of an international collaborative informational system for emergency situations management of flood and land slide disaster areas».
