14th International Conference on Electromechanics and Robotics "Zavalishin's Readings" (ER(ZR)-2019)

Kursk, Russia, April 17-20, 2019 



The conference was established as a tribute to the memory of Dmitry Aleksandrovich Zavalishin (1900-1968) пїЅ a Russian scientist, corresponding member of the USSR Academy of Sciences, professor, doctor of technical sciences, honored worker of science and technology of the RSFSR, founder of the school of valve energy converters based on electric machines and valve converters energy. The first conference was organized by the Institute of Innovative Technologies in Electromechanics and Robotics of the St. Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation in 2006 and is timed to the 60th anniversary of the Institute. Today the conference has become international and be held for the thirteenth time in St. Petersburg.

The purpose of the conference is the exchange of information and progressive results of scientific research work of scientific and pedagogical workers, young scientists, graduate students, applicants and students in the field of: automatic control systems, electromechanics, electric power engineering and electrical engineering, mechatronics, robotics, automation, technical physics and management in the electric power industry.

In this year, the conference is organized together with XIII International Scientific and Technical Conference "Vibration-2019. The vibration technology, mechatronics and controlled machines" in Southwest State University in Kursk, Russia.


The conference is organized by St. Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation (SUAI, St. Petersburg, Russia) and St. Petersburg Institute for Informatics and Automation of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SPIIRAS, St. Petersburg, Russia) with cooperation of Southwest State University (SWSU, Kursk, Russia).

The conference is held with the financial support of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, project No. 19-08-20021.

Lecture Title: Biologically Inspired Bipedal Locomotion – From Control Concept to Human-Like Biped

Abstract: In the field of humanoid robotics, a rapidly increasing number of biologically based constructions and algorithms can be observed to go operational. However, usually they are discussed as an individual and isolated component. The importance of the component collaboration is therefore widely missed. Hence, this paper presents the main biological reasonings throughout the whole development process of the Compliant Robotic Leg Carl as a whole. It is shown how the design decisions of the individual components are related to each other and why this is mandatory in order to achieve a high performance result.

Lecture Title: Artificial intelligence based framework for robotic search and rescue operations conducted jointly by international teams

Abstract: Many countries suffer from various natural disasters, including heavy rains, that are associated with further flood and landslide disasters. Based on our experiences of different disasters response we develop a joint international operation framework for a disaster site management with distributed heterogeneous UAV/UGV/UUV/USV robotic teams. The artificial intelligence based information collection system, which is targeting to become a worldwide standard, contains interaction protocols, thematic mapping approaches and map fusion processes. The project provides a new working framework and control strategies for heterogeneous robotic teams’ cooperative behaviour in sensing, monitoring and mapping of flood and landslide disaster areas.

Lecture Title: Control of hyperlinked cyber-physical systems

Abstract: Main factors of the formation of a hyper-linked cyber-physical systems and the actual methods control problems in are difficult problems. It is concluded that the entry into this new technology in the development of information society-the formation of a hyper-connected world, it is necessary to widely introduce and develop a theory of optimal control that can make useful cyber-physical systems in real world. Model of hyper-linked cyber-physical systems contains object – smart devices, converter and mathematical bases of functioning.
