Small-sized municipal vehicles may appear in Minsk

Small-sized municipal vehicles can appear in Minsk courtyards in the near future. The first prototype will be presented by the end of 2017.

The novelty is universal and indispensable at any time of the year. Some vehicles are small enough to easily maneuver between cars and in narrow spaces. This will allow cleaning snow in yards more efficiently.

Sergey Poddubko, Director General of the United Machine Building Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus:
The vehicle is compact, all-wheel drive, maneuverable and it can fulfill a lot of functions. Its vacuum cleaner does not scatter garbage, but removes it and cleans it. Another function is watering. In winter it cleans snow and adds salt mixtures and so on. The vehicle is universal with very great export prospects.

In honor of the 60th anniversary of the Institute of Mechanical Engineering another development was introduced - a robotic platform. With its help you can perform actions that can be dangerous for a human. For example, it can neutralize an explosive device or extinguish a fire in a hard-to-reach place.
