【组合机器人抬起一辆车,就这么随意】

【组合机器人抬起一辆车,就这么随意】由希腊塞萨斯德谟克里特大学牵头制造的这款组合机器人叫Avert,每一个组成部分都有A4纸大小。主要功能是将机器人每部分附着在轮胎下,协同工作时,就可以将车迅速的抬起或移动。此外,控制机器人的系统还可以扫描行车障碍,并给车辆规划合理的驾驶路线。

Watch the creepy robot swarm that can move a CAR: Tiny machines surround wheels and work together to lift vehicles

You probably won’t realise they are coming until it’s too late.

Tiny robots, the size of an A4 sheet, are being programmed to lift cars that are up to two tonnes in weight.

Working together, these creepy machines are able to sneak up unnoticed and silently remove their target from the scene.

The robots, collectively called Avert, are the creation of a European consortium led by the Democritus University of Thrace in Greece.

A ‘Autonomous Multi-Robot System for Vehicle Extraction and Transportation’ (Avert) computer first selects a vehicle to be moved after cameras have mapping the area in detail.

The Avert system then works by sending a deployment unit to scan the area again and identify new potential obstacles.

Once this has been done, bogies deploy from the depolyment unit and are tracked to a target vehicle, where they dock onto the wheels and lift the car.

These bogies are fitted with on-board sensors, including two lasers and a digital camera.

The sensors help the Avert tool move the vehicle without human intervention, while avoiding obstacles.

While the system may seem creepy, it could have important applications for bomb disposal teams.

Researchers envisage the system being used by the police to remove suspicious vehicles, potentially rigged with explosives, from within buildings.

‘Current methods of bomb disruption and neutralisation are hindered in the event that the device is shielded, blocked or for whatever reason cannot be accessed for examination,’ the researcher wrote on their site.

Avert can provide an autonomous capability to remove blocking vehicles which is not currently available.’Other uses could include removing cars parked in a tight spot or helping vehicles move within a car park without a driver.

The team has been working on the technology since 2012 and believes a production model could be ready by next year.

They will be showcasing the system at the upcoming International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA2015) on May 26th to 30th in Seattle.
