Eugene Sorokin

Describe yourself: Who you are and what you're doing?
I'm an electronics engineer and an electronics and software developer. I've been working 13 years iin the same job position, which is to develop devices for measurements and control. The main field of my occupation is a little bit far from robotics. My company develops and produces personal medical equipment, or to be exact, cardiac electronic tools, and we offer contract production of PCBs and SMD montages too.

How did your interest in robots / robotics start?
I have always been interested in automation and robots which are the direct solutions of solving a lot of people needs. All that was just fantasy before I saw a home buit CNC machine. That was just a small piece of fire for my tanks of desire [:)] so I've built my first and the last (until now a days) CNC. Another experience came later on, when I built a small bi-ped robot. But the main line of business was taking me far away from these type of works, but I'm keeping my eye on this field.

What kind of actions needs to be done in the community to increase the interest and the awareness of robots / robotics?
The main factor to intensify the use of robotics is education I think. And this is the basis, not only for the development, but even for simple use of the automated programmed tools in daily life. Another factor is like the flip side of a coin, usability: how easy is to programme and to control the robotics, and what kind of tools we should use for this. Are these systems self educating? Fully or partially? Will the average man or woman be able to control an automated port crane or for example ROV in waters of the ocean, or to develop robotics systems? Or should they be above the average level of basic skills? So the main question is how far our society is ready to go in robotics using.
