This is the digest of Promobot company. The place for all of the latest news, our achievements as well as interesting events. This text contains the most notable events in the first half of October 2019.

The world’s first robot coach

Promobot company and basketball club “PARMA” created a robot coach. Robot signed a contract with the team on October 10, taking the position of analytical coach of the club.

The duties of the robot coach will include the collection and analysis of data during games. With the help of neural networks, Promobot will process statistical indicators of players, and then calculate the optimal combinations of basketball players on the court, replacements and provide this to the head coach. The mechanical coach will be present at all Parma’s home matches.
This is the first time in the history of sports that a robot has become a full participant in the game, including coaches, judges and players.

Promobot at the UNESCO world heritage site

Promobot V. 4 is employed in Naryn-Kala citadel, Derbent, Russia. The staff of the fortress called the robot Mamed.
The robot will conduct tours, relay the history of the city and the fortress, as well as answer questions from guests. Derbent is the oldest city in Russia and one of the oldest cities in the world, and the citadel of Naryn-Kala is included in the UNESCO world heritage list.
Robot Mamed is the first Promobot on the map of the Caucasus.

The first “star” Robo-Cs

In October we introduced two new models of Robo-C companion robot: copies of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Albert Einstein.
Both robots fully mimic the appearance of their “prototypes”. The robots can move their eyes, eyebrows, lips, neck, and partake in conversation. The “face” of the droids can display more than 600 variants of the person’s facial expressions. To achieve maximum realism, Promobot specialists have created and patented their own design of the face, as well as used their technology to create artificial skin.

We presented a copy of Arnold Schwarzenegger to the Hollywood actor himself – the encounter happened backstage of the Synergy Global Forum. Mechanical Albert Einstein appeared in public during the Finopolis forum.
