As in “Avatar”: “Roskosmos” makes a humanoid android for work in outer space

Published

on

Roskosmos confirms that TsNIIMash and Rocket and Space Corporation Energia have begun to create the first domestic humanoid robot Teledroid, which will be used to perform work in outer space.

The robot should be ready for use by 2025, it will be sent to the International Space Station, while it will constantly be on the outer surface of the ISS scientific energy module. The development of the Teledroid robot will be attended by the NPO Android Technics, which has created the Fyodor robot (Skybot F-850), which visited the ISS in 2019. After this mission, the creation of a new humanoid robot was announced.

According to the plan, Teledroid will become a humanoid android without legs, which will move between ISS modules on a manipulator. It is noteworthy that it will be possible to control the robot in “avatar mode” not only from the ISS, but also from the Earth. For this, the operators will have special suits. The robot will be able to perform some operations on its own.

Targeted work of “Teledroid” is primarily aimed at developing technologies (including artificial intelligence) of space robotics, which is necessary for further exploration of space and planets.

Android 12 is inferior in popularity to Android 11 Android

The latest Android distribution data from Google shows that Android 11 (Android R) currently has the largest user base. About 27% of users remain on this operating system.

Android 12 is inferior in popularity to Android 11, Android 10 and even Android 9

Next come Android 10 (Android Q) with a score of 18.8% and Android 9 (Android P), which occupies 14.5% of the market. Although Android 12 (Android S) is almost a year old, this operating system only ranks fourth with a score of 13.5%. That is, today, among active Android devices, only one in eight uses Android 12.
