Robotization is one of the crucial directions of modernizing today's industrial production. Robotic systems offer solutions to many different challenges. However, their implementation is constrained by limited accuracy, which is inferior to conventional machine tools. A way to improve industrial robots' accuracy is to calibrate them, i.e., eliminate factors that affect accuracy by refining the mathematical models for software correction of manufacturing and assembly errors, as well as elastic and thermal deformations.

Modeling the influence of components leakage currents on the accuracy of the recurrent LADCS

This work is dedicated to the investigation of errors in the recurrent logarithmic analog-to-digital converters (LADC). A generalized structural diagram of the recurrent LADC with a variable logarithmic base is provided. The implementation features and operating principles are explained. Models of the recurrent LADCs that account for the influence of component leakage currents in the converter circuits have been developed. The models consider changes in the structure of the recurrent LADCs during the conversion process.

GPS signal jamming effect in Svalbard Island and its elimination by using GLONASS, Galileo and Beidou satellites

The Svalbard Islands are located in the Arctic Ocean, halfway between Norway and the North Pole. Because of this, the Svalbard Islands exhibit a number of special properties that make it an interesting region for studying interactions between the atmosphere, sea ice, and ocean. In this study, satellite signals of three points (NABG, NYA2 and NYAL) on the island of Svalbard in the Barents Sea were examined. On January 8, 2022, signal jamming effects appeared at all three points.

About metric and angular dependencies of spatial straight line notches and their use in engineering and geodetic works

In applied geodesy tasks, it may be necessary to determine spatial angles. When bringing a 3D design of buildings and structures to the field with the help of an electronic total station (ES), it is important to verify the spatial angles between different elements of building structures such as roof overlaps, inclined anchors, and more, using the characteristic points' spatial coordinates. Modern geodetic instruments provide sufficiently high measurement accuracy (up to 1" and 1 mm, respectively).

The role of the tidal systems of global geoid models in the determination of heights using the GNSS leveling method

A number of factors can significantly affect the accuracy of height determination when applying the GNSS leveling method. In general, it is possible to distinguish those related to the process of GNSS observations and their post-processing, and those related to the selection of the geoid/quasi-geoid height model. This work focuses on aspects of GNSS leveling accuracy when choosing global geoid models. In particular, to better ensure accuracy, it is important to understand the significance of the heights tidal system selection of global geoid models.


This work is devoted to the study of the features of the implementation of recurrent logarithmic analog-to-digital converters (LADC). The general principles of construction of recurrent LADCs are outlined. The implementation of recurrent LADC with a constant and a variable in the process of converting the base of the logarithm is considered. Generalized structural schemes of the recurrent LADCs are given, and their accuracy and speed of operation are evaluated.

Improvement in the construction of the “Tungsten carbide insert cutter - cone” joint for tricone drill bits

Meet a claim is quite difficult in real production, even in specialized drilling manufacturers. Therefore, the development of reliable criteria for approaches to improving the technology of tricone drill bits is an urgent problem. This is great practical importance for domestic enterprise. The task is set to create rock-destroying insert in the basis of the developed construction. This allows you to increase the reliability of the connection between the cutter insert and the body of the cone.

The Influence of Technological Factors on the Reliability Connection for Tungsten Carbide Inset Cutter of Roller Cone Bits

Aim. Analysis of used bits revealed the effect when the tungsten carbide insert cutter was scrolling around its axis. Therefore, the task was to study the causes of this phenomenon. Hardness was measured followed by setting the hardness distribution gradient in the section of the hole, in order to evaluate the strength parameters of steel in the zone of the hole. Method. Applying a well-tested method, namely the method of successive approximations, we determined the estimate of the standard deviation and the evaluation criterion.
