The market size has an average annual growth rate of 22% in the past five years, and intelligent robots are convenient for daily life

Winter is coming, when you want to learn to ski, there is skiingrobotBe a sparring partner; if you want a cup of coffee, life Robots can help; all kinds ofmedicalRehabilitation robots are more healthy and worry-free… With the continuous integration of informatization and industrialization, the intelligent industry represented by robot technology is booming, and more and moreservice robotinto people’s daily life.

The “China Robot Industry Development Report (2022)” recently released by the Chinese Institute of Electronics shows that the average annual growth rate of China’s robot market in the past five years has reached 22%. In life, the application of robots in education, medical rehabilitation, emergency rescue and other fields has been continuously expanded, and the intelligent era of human-machine integration has begun.

Meet emerging consumer needs

“I saw someone walking a mechanical dog on the street”, “Walking a ‘dog’ today and being watched for a day”… The topic of “the first group of people walking a mechanical dog” has attracted the attention of netizens a few days ago. In the video, the mechanical dog that appeared on the street was photographed by people. These mechanical dogs have the same size and limbs as pet dogs, and can also perform actions such as rolling and bowing. In addition to identifying obstacles, the camera on the head can also intelligently identify the owner and follow them. Some consumers who bought a mechanical dog listed many advantages of the mechanical dog, such as no need to buy dog ​​food, no excrement, obedient and quiet, etc.

Several Chinese companies have launched a variety of mechanical dog products. For example, the intelligent companion bionic robot launched by Hangzhou Yushu Technology Co., Ltd. can carry a load of 3 kg and run with the owner. The bionic quadruped robot released by Xiaomi last year has functions such as face recognition, human body recognition, and human-computer interaction.

With the continuous improvement of the manufacturing level, robots are moving from the Industrial field to people’s ordinary life, helping people solve various problems encountered in life.

In the field of home services, robots can act as people’s life assistants.Sweeping robots, mopping robots, cooking robots… all kinds of familiesservice robotAppears in family life. For example, in June of this year, Midea Group launched a robot named “Xiaowei”, which also acts as an “identity” such as an artificial intelligence housekeeper, home assistant, security guard, and technology playmate.

In sports and education, robots can act as coaches and teachers for people. At the World Robot Expo held in August this year, a six-legged ski robot attracted attention. It can imitate human plough skiing, complete functions such as starting, sliding, turning, and stopping on the slopes of 20 degrees, with a maximum speed of 20 kilometers per hour. Carry out patrol, rescue and other operations in severe cold and complex environments. In September, a chess-playing robot “walked” into a Chinese chess school in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province. It includes artificial intelligence learning chess, endgame challenge, chess power breakthrough, peak duel and other modes. It can introduce and explain chess culture and rules to students, and has built-in more than 100 endgame settings and 26 levels of chess power battles.

Be a good life assistant for the elderly

A few days ago, Mr. Zhang in Beijing received a gift from his family – a wearable exoskeleton robot. He was over sixty years old and suffered a cerebral infarction this year. After being discharged from the hospital, he left the sequelae of hemiplegia, weakness in his lower limbs and inconvenience in traveling. This wearable exoskeleton looks like a leg bone and is attached to the outside of the thigh. After training, Mr. Zhang can gradually walk in the correct posture and can do some basic exercises. At present, Mr. Zhang is not only in better physical condition, but also more confident.

With the acceleration of the aging process of China’s population, the demand for robots focusing on the elderly market has increased, and some products that help the elderly to improve their self-care ability and prevent accidental injuries have emerged.

Engineers at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have created a new robot that can predict falls and “hold” the elderly before they fall to the ground. The robot looks like a power chair, with protective straps wrapped around the user’s hips.Protective belt equippedsensor, can make a judgment when the user begins to lose balance, and the robot uses a protective belt to prevent the user from falling. Currently being tested in stroke, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury patients, the robot helps older adults sit, stand and walk. There were no records of falls among older adults in the tests, the researchers said.

In order to promote the advent of more Robotic products for the elderly, the “14th Five-Year Plan for the Development of the National Aging and Elderly Service System” issued by the State Council earlier this year proposed to support the research and development of key technologies such as intelligent interaction, intelligent operation, and multi-machine collaboration. Improve the intelligence, practicability and safety of elderly-friendly products such as rehabilitation aids, health monitoring products, elderly care devices, home service robots, and daily auxiliary products.

Industry insiders believe that robots will play a role in helping the elderly and the disabled in the future, and may provide new solutions for China’s future elderly care business.

Accelerate into thousands of households

The “14th Five-Year” Robot Industry Development Plan issued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Science and Technology and other departments at the end of last year proposed that by 2025, China will become the source of global robot technology innovation, high-end manufacturing agglomeration and a new highland for integrated applications. By 2035, the comprehensive strength of China’s robot industry will reach the international leading level.

Judging from the products released by related companies, service robots are developing towards the trend of providing people with more convenient and intelligent services and more complex functions. However, since the application scenario is an environment related to people’s work and life, the background, cognition and habits of consumers are also different, which puts forward higher requirements for robot products. How to integrate intelligent voice, processor, artificial intelligence algorithm, communication, big data, internet of Things and other technologies to create a service robot that is lighter, smarter and more capable of environmental perception and human-computer interaction has become the focus of industry research.

Tao Yong, a doctoral supervisor at Beihang University, believes that robots will be widely used in people’s work and life in the future. However, compared with the advanced level of foreign countries, the development of my country’s robot industry faces many challenges, such as some core technologies have not been effectively broken through, the functional positioning of some products is not clear enough, and the scale of leading enterprises is limited. Tao Yong also suggested that basic research should be strengthened to form an innovative ecology of robot core technology, and promote the virtuous circle and development of technology and industry; further play the leading role of leading robot enterprises to accelerate the application and promotion of products; strengthen the training of talents in the field of robotics, explore production and education A new model of integrated robot education; further strengthen the coordinated and stable development of the robot industry chain and supply chain, and realize the independent and controllable industrial chain.

Experts believe that the consumer-grade robot market has great potential, but the movement of robot products to the consumer end requires not only product changes, but also comprehensive changes in thinking, service models, and marketing models. Only by fully integrating technology, industry chain and consumer scenarios can relevant companies make reliable products that can enter thousands of households.
