The Russian State Scientific Center for Robotics and Technical Cybernetics (RTC) is one of the largest research centers in Russia. The Institute has a developed scientific and research and design-engineering base, unique test facilities and pilot production.
It was CREATED on January 29, 1968 as a Special Design Bureau of Technical Cybernetics (OKB TK) at Leningrad Polytechnic Institute (now Peter the Great Saint Petersburg Polytechnic University). In 1981 OKB TK was reorganized into RTC.
Key directions of development of scientific and technological activity:
- Creation of mobile robotic systems and transport manipulating systems of different environments
- Intellectualization of control systems for robotic systems and their groups
- Creation of information support for robots
- Creation of microrobotics tools and miniature robotic systems
- Creation of systems of radiation monitoring, intelligence and control
- Creation of mechatronic, photonic, laser and optoelectronic systems
MAIN INVENTIONS OF THE INSTITUTE INCLUDE mobile robotic systems for specific applications and safety, land, air and marine radiation monitoring systems, soft landing control systems and spacecraft life support systems, computer vision systems for the security and object management, network processors (screens) and information security systems, automated laser beam machines for marking, welding and cutting.
RTC collaborates with specialized research institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Universities of Russia, holds regular forums, conferences, seminars of national and international caliber.
The main customers of RTC products in RUSSIA are the leading enterprises of space-rocket industry, power structures and industrial enterprises.
FOREIGN PARTNERS OF RTC – the European Space Agency (ESA), European Aeronautic Defense And Space (EADS), International Science and Technology Center, Electrolux, Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics (Germany), Hitachi Kokusai Electric, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Nissan Motor, a number of other companies in Europe, Asia and America.
International recognition of RTC as a center of competence in the field of technical cybernetics, mechatronics and robotics
