On September 25th and 26th, South Ural State University will present the innovative projects of its researchers at the Tekhnosreda Festival, which will be held in Moscow and will become a key event in the Year of Science and Technology in Russia. The event will bring leading representatives of the Russian scientific community together: technology companies, universities, research institutes, and researchers and leaders in science.
The advanced developments of SUSU researchers are aimed at creating smart devices and improving the environmental situation in Russia. For example, under the guidance of Vladimir Shepelev, Candidate of Sciences (Engineering), the AIMS-Eco dynamic system of intellectual emission monitoring was developed. Neural networks and artificial intelligence serve as the foundation for this system. AIMS-Eco analyses data on emissions from motor vehicles in real time and helps effectively control environmental risks in urban areas.
Another interesting environmental project is led by Irina Potoroko, Doctor of Sciences (Engineering). Researchers are working on new ways to produce bioplastics. The goal of their work is to reduce polymer waste and switch to environmentally-friendly biodegradable materials.
Young researcher, postgraduate student of the Department of Theoretical Foundations of Electrical Engineering Ivan Chuyduk is developing a wheel hub motor for a hybrid car based on an electric valve motor of combined excitation. This device will help reduce the size of the electronic control system and place it in the wheel hub, freeing up space for energy storage and increasing the comfort of the driver.
The main organizer of the event is the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation. Russian Society Znanie is the intellectual partner. This year, the Tekhnosreda Festival will be an important scientific event focused on the popularization of science and demonstration of Russia's technological potential.
"Russia is a country of unique developments and technologies; we have implemented major space and nuclear projects. In the Year of Science and Technology we aim to demonstrate how the work of scientists changes the world around us. Science makes human life more comfortable and attractive, and you will be able to see that at the Tekhnosreda Festival. We aim for as many young people as possible to aspire to enter research and development," said Valery Falkov, Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation.
South Ural State University (SUSU) is a university of digital transformations, where innovative research is conducted in most of the priority fields of science and technology development. In accordance with the strategy of scientific and technological development of the Russian Federation, the university is focused on the development of big scientific interdisciplinary projects in the field of digital industry, materials science, and ecology. In the Year of Science and Technology, it will take part in the competition under the Priority-2030 program. The university acts as a regional project office of the World-class Ural Interregional Research and Education Centre (UIREC).
