The students will study robotics with Promobot Robot at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College in North Carolina, the USA. The robot enables students to study several courses. It will serve as an “active” laboratory stand in training sessions.
Promobot V.4 is a service robot to work at large gatherings of people. The robot can operate as a manager, guide or airport officer. Promobot allows the students to study both programming and electronics and mechatronics. The program includes 6 lab works.
“The specific feature of robotics study with Promobot is an application of an “active” robot that operates now throughout 42 countries worldwide. The students use active service robots instead of training models to learn AI technologies. There is a unique opportunity to use robots that operate throughout the world from the USA to Australia. The students are able to develop their own projects that can get from college science laboratory to our developers. For example, this robot model could probably operate in the National Bank of Oman,” says Oleg Kivokurtsev, Promobot Development Director.
College students will learn to create and program the robots to help people performing various tasks from processing bank requests to cargo delivery. The students will get to know robot management, face recognition, people and robot communication scenarios, human-computer interaction using a late-model Promobot.
For Promobot this is the first experience of cooperation with specialized secondary schools of the USA. The project began in 2020, although because of the pandemic, the robot’s application was shifted until further notice. With removing limits of 2020 in the state of North Carolina, institution directors took action on resuming classes with Promobot robots.
