Russian State Scientific Center for Robotics and Technical Cybernetics (RTC)
is one of the largest research centers of Russia. The Institute was founded in January 1968 on the basis of Leningrad Polytechnic Institute (Saint-Petersburg State Polytechnic University nowadays).
The activities of the Institute are concentrated in spheres of research, development and creation of space, aerial, ground-based and aquatorial means of robotics and technical cybernetics.
The Institute has its own production capabilities, research and specialized test benches. Departments and chairs of Saint-Petersburg State Polytechnic University are functioning on the basis of the Institute, and there are also regional, all-Russian and international seminars and conferences regularly held in RTC.
To create inter-branch, research and development innovative-educational complex for cybernetic and intelligent robotic systems, unified components (modules) for the systems of control, data processing and transfer, as the element of infrastructure in the sphere of realizing state research-and-technology policy in the form of federal center for science and high technologies. This center is aimed to make pilot samples of high technology field-oriented products
Russian State Scientific Center for Robotics and Technical Cybernetics (RTC) is one of the largest research centers in Russia. The Institute has comprehensive basis both in research and development, owns research and specialized test benches and production capabilities.
CREATED on 29th January, 1968 as Special Design Bureau of Technical Cybernetics at Leningrad Polytechnic Institute (Saint-Petersburg State Polytechnic University nowadays), in 1981 it was re-organized into RTC.
MAIN RTC ACTIVITIES are mechatronics and robotics, intelligent control systems, photon and optoelectronic engineering, special and space applications engineering, laser and space technologies, information-control systems and simulators.
MAIN RTC DEVELOPMENTS: mobile robotic complexes for special applications and safety and security provision; ground-based, aerial and aquatorial systems for radiation control and monitoring, soft-landing control systems and life-support systems for spacecrafts, computer vision systems for objects guarding and control, network processors (screens) and information safety systems, automated laser technological complexes for marking, welding and cutting.
RTC co-operates with field-oriented research institutes within Russian Academy of Sciences and Universities of Russia, and regularly holds all-Russian and international forums, conferences and seminars.
