The service robot industry is big but not strong, the growing troubles need to be overcome

AsiaIndustrial NetNews: With the rapid development of artificial intelligence technology, service-orientedRobotThe industry and application are gradually emerging, and it has been widely used in many industries including housekeeping, medical care, logistics and so on. At the same time, the overall size of my country’s service Robot industry is still a bottleneck that needs to be broken through.

With the rapid development of deep learning, speech recognition and other technologies, the service Robot industry and applications are gradually emerging. Robots have evolved from one-way communication and execution of commands to those that can understand semantics and respond to dialogue content.

At present, service robots have been widely used in many industries including housekeeping, medical care, logistics, etc., and are changing the original industrial model. In addition, policies such as the “Robot Industry Development Plan (2016-2020)” issued by the state have also given strong policy support to my country’s service robot industry.

The data shows that the size of China’s service robot market reached 7.29 billion yuan in 2016, a year-on-year increase of 44.6%, and the scale in 2019 is expected to be close to 15.2 billion yuan. In addition, in 2016, there were as many as 70 domestic financing events in this field, and the total financing amount exceeded 1 billion US dollars (about 7 billion yuan). Service robots have become a new market investment hotspot.

In the social environment where labor is increasingly scarce, service robots are becoming more and more popular among enterprises and even families. Driven by many parties, the development of service robots has been paid more and more attention.

On March 25th, the 2017 Service Robot Industry Ecology Conference was held in Beijing, and relevant institutions and brands from the field of technology research and development and industrial applications gathered together. Focusing on how to promote the healthy growth of China’s robot industry, Intel, Cannyyoulan, Shensi Electronics, iFLYTEK and other units conducted detailed discussions.

At this conference, Kangliyoulan officially released the new product of Xiaoben robot (Miniyou), RFC series products and the upgrade function of Aileyou (Xiaoyou). On the CANNYU blue robot system, using visual programming, developers in the education field can easily develop teaching software, transform the teaching method into the robot platform, and lead the robot education into the 2.0 era.

Despite the frequent emergence of new products, the homogeneity of service robot products in my country is serious, the products of personalized service are scarce, and the industry as a whole is large but not strong. The reasons are: one is the lack of core technologies; the other is that the industry needs market enlightenment to increase product promotion; the third is that it has not attracted large-scale participation of core technology developers and application scene developers.

As for how to promote the healthy development of China’s robot industry? Liu Xuenan, founder of CANNY Youlan, proposed the “DNA Double Helix Ecological Growth Model” at the 2017 Service Robot Industry Ecological Conference held on March 25. This model emphasizes the two-pronged approach of technology research and development platform and industrial application platform, coordinated development and mutual promotion, and each platform will generate growth points to promote industrial development.

“The technology research and development platform is a platform for sharing high-precision and cutting-edge core technologies. It invests funds, encourages innovation, cultivates technology brands and talents, and connects with professional service providers in various fields such as human body recognition, human-computer interaction, and sensors. In the process of technology research and development, every New technologies may expand new industrial applications. The industrial application platform focuses on solving the service needs of robots in various industries. On the one hand, it needs to obtain the main needs of users, propose solutions, find problems in the application process, and upgrade and adjust at any time. In a single application field To form the optimal solution, at the same time, it can also put forward new technical requirements and promote technological development.” Liu Xuenan said.

In addition, accelerating the development of scene applications is also an accelerator for the fission of the service robot industry. At present, robots can perceive the world, make logical judgments, perform fast calculations, bionic motion, operation control, human-computer interaction, and even surpass human beings. Rescue, unmanned, military operations, aerospace. If there is no market enlightenment and vigorous promotion of marketing, the relevant demand industries will not be able to join the field of robotics, resulting in the lag in the development of the robotics market.

From this point of view, in the next few years, the following trends will appear in the Chinese service robot market. First, service robots will further penetrate into many industries; second, service robots will develop in the direction of serialization; third, service robots will be more autonomous and intelligent in the future. In addition, the future high-intelligence robots will also be endowed with more functions, and the “robot housekeeper” is expected to become a reality.
