Russian Railways Holding to offer transport industry a platform of programmable robots

Russian Railways Technologies, a subsidiary of Russian Railways, together with the software developer Robin LLC, are implementing a project to create a platform of programmable robots for the transport and logistics industry.

A corresponding project called Cloud Factory of Programmable Robots has received a grant of 80 million roubles from the Skolkovo Foundation to implement Russian digital solutions within the framework of the federal government project Digital Technologies.

The Cloud Factory will be a domestic digital infrastructure that will enable customers to automate their business. Cloud Factory will make available the administration of information systems and databases, the electronic registration of services and the processing of calls received by the contact centre etc.

The project includes a platform for the operation of programmable robots, a development module and a shop of ready-made robots. Users will be able to purchase software solutions for use within the platform. Customers will also be able to use the service to robotize their business processes without having to purchase infrastructure and create their own in-house expert robotization centre.
