Antistress helmet

In the autumn of 1991, a research Institute of Artificial Intelligence Problems was established in Donetsk, subordinated to the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. In 2014, due to the events in the East of the country, the scientists moved to Kyiv, where a branch of the institute was already operating at that time. Recently, the staff of the institute has been working on developments, mostly related to the military sphere. Recently, scientists participated in a competition for projects commissioned by the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

For the Armed Forces of Ukraine, scientists have proposed a unique development - a helmet used for psychophysiological rehabilitation of a person in a stressful situation. The invention has already been tested, in particular in the field in the anti-terrorist operation zone. According to the director of the Institute of Artificial Intelligence Problems, Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Honored Worker of Science and Technology of Ukraine, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Doctor of Theology, Professor Anatoliy Shevchenko, the helmet has artificial intelligence, corrects the human condition, relieves stress. It was created together with scientists from the Institute of Occupational Medicine of the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine.The action of the helmet is aimed at biologically active areas of the human head by physical stimuli of different nature. These are, in particular, vibrations, infrared and ultrasonic radiation, sound (music, speech), soothing noise (sea, forests, birdsong). Specially selected audio and video series are given simultaneously.

"The combination of different sounds, vibrations, radiation has a positive effect on a person, changes its psychophysical condition - relieves stress and even cures some nervous disorders. The emotional state of a person and well-being in general is changing, - Anatoliy Shevchenko explains. - A helmet is a kind of massager that does not require the involvement of medical staff. Massage programs are approved by the Ministry of Health and stored in the memory of the microprocessor unit. They are selected by the user. The helmet can work both autonomously and through a connection to a computer system. "Answering a question about when the unusual helmets will enter the army, Anatoliy Shevchenko says: “We received a positive response from the Department of Military Education and Science of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine regarding the need to adjust the psychophysiological condition of soldiers. Therefore, after conducting all the necessary research, this development will be introduced into serial production at the factories of the defense industry. Hopefully, this can happen next year. There are all possibilities for this: scientific, financial and production."

Among other military developments of the Institute of Artificial Intelligence Problems is a robot that can work independently in the field for up to 10 hours in search of explosive devices. Scientists have also created a search system to neutralize drones. Another very interesting development that scientists have proposed to our Armed Forces is long-term firing points. Small arms will be installed in a small concrete case. There is also ventilation and video cameras that capture nearby objects. The artificial intelligence system itself determines whether a person is or not, in what clothes. Its coordinates are determined, and small arms are immediately aimed at the target. The system can work in automatic mode, without an operator.Scientists are working on this development together with the scientific unit of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
