Ant Intelligent Robot (AIR) is a small and powerful mobile robot platform that is designed to be used in a heterogeneous robotic swarm that is currently under development at the Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence and Multi-Agent Systems (AI-MAS) at the University “Politehnica” of Bucharest under the supervision of Prof. Adina Magda Florea. I made this video to depict the major development stages of the project.

Some of AIR’s feature highlights are:

  • Robot application development can be done in almost any programming language (C/C++, Java, Python, Ruby, Pearl… even Bash).
  • The robot has a distributed fault-tolerant hardware architecture with a state-of-the-art control and positioning system.
  • It runs a real-time Linux OS.
  • It is equipped with range and proximity sensors, a image processing module and an audio recognition system.
  • It weights approximately 0.7 Kg with a circumference of 10 cm and, like an ant, can push, pull or carry up to 9 Kg (more than 10 times its actual weight).

How robots and bubbles could soon help clean up underwater litter

Everyone loves to visit the seaside, whether to enjoy the physical benefits of an exhilarating swim or simply to relax on the beach and catch some sun. But these simple life affirming pleasures are easily ruined by the presence of litter, which if persistent can have a serious negative impact on both the local environment and economy. However, help is at hand to ensure the pristine nature of our coastlines.
