Federal Institution "Unmanned KAMAZ"


The unmanned vehicle KAMAZ-Autorobot has 3 modes of autonomous control:


1. Remote control mode of movement.

This mode is intended for conducting a car without a driver using a remote control panel to overcome extreme obstacles or in conditions that pose a risk to human life.

The car is at the starting point A. The operator puts an unmanned vehicle into remote control mode and drives it at an acceleration of up to 40 km/h along the diagonal of the site to point B. The unmanned vehicle stops, puts on reverse gear and makes a reversal maneuver in the remote mode control and stands beside point B to continue the demonstration.


2. Autonomous motion control mode with stopping when an obstacle is detecting.

The car is located at point B. The operator shifts the unmanned vehicle to the autonomous control mode, in which the vehicle moves without the participation of both the dispatcher and the driver, making decisions independently. The movement is carried out according to preprogrammed and OBU-installed route. During the driving, detection and recognition of obstacles takes place in the frontal area of the vehicle. The system supports recognition of cars, road signs and pedestrians. When detecting a pedestrian in proximity, the unmanned vehicle makes a stop. After the person clears the path, the movement is resumed along the following route. The car continues to move to the end of point A, where it completes its maneuver.


3. The mode of autonomous control of traffic with a detour of obstacles.

The car starts to move from point A in the mode of autonomous movement and carries out detour of obstacles encountered on the unmanned vehicle route. Traffic cones serve as obstacles, the maneuver is carried out without deviating from the preprogrammed and activated route.

The spectators are given an opportunity to use virtual reality glasses to observe the process of detection. Additionally, there is an option to take a passenger seat in the vehicle for a better experience during the demonstration.
