Guest Przemysław Rudzia and Sławomir Nichczyński spoke about the activities of the institution where he works. We have departments in several German cities. These departments deal with aspects of artificial intelligence in building systems, vision, machine learning, data processing, and medicine. The Bremen team is working on AI in robotic systems that need it at different scales. The main divisions deal, among other things, with underwater systems, human-robot cooperation, that is, popular cobots, and the team on which I am happy to do deals with space robots – he said.

The expert emphasized that space robotics is a very important part of space exploration. – Where a man cannot send a job. The space environment is very hostile to humans. If we want to send a man to do some task, we have to provide him with the whole “housing”, i.e. heating and temperature systems, a system that supplies him with oxygen, and a system that nourishes him in some way. In general, the person must be separated and kept alive, which means that we also base the rest of the systems on it. Mechanical and mechatronic devices don’t need it, we don’t need to feed it or give it oxygen, so it’s simpler and it costs money to move every kilogram, so for a robot that will be much smaller than a human, and we don’t have to add food and all the equipment, it’s much less complicated. The first and second: robots are more accurate. If we design a bot for a specific task, we can do it better and faster than if it were done by a human. He noted that the robot would not get tired or stressed, it would just get the job done.
