Which service robots will be favored in the future?

2020/11/11

According to Lars Reneke, a German economist, there are mainly the following: disinfection robots that can help disinfect public places such as hospitals and reduce personnel risks, and laboratory robots that can help scientific researchers complete dangerous operations. Housework also facilitates remote monitoring of relatives, friends and doctors to take care of the elderly robots, parking robots that help drivers park and prepare vehicles in advance, robots that transport food and medicine, and robots that provide information in public places.

Regarding the development of the robotics industry, Lars Reneck believes that China has more advantages in the field of service robots: First, China has comprehensive advantages in artificial intelligence, 5G, and big data, which can improve the intelligent voice and image of robots. Recognition, algorithms and other technologies drive more scene-based applications. Second, China has advantages in the industrial chain, from upstream raw materials, to an active global R&D system, and to the world's largest consumer group. In addition, Chinese companies have advantages such as sufficient funds. These are not available to European, American and Japanese robot manufacturers. Of course, Chinese companies should also cooperate with global leaders to enhance their overall strength.

Looking at the world, disinfection robots are still a new topic in the field of intelligent robots, and there is no particularly authoritative industry standard as of now. However, the outbreak of the epidemic in China was early and AI technology companies responded in a timely manner. Both R&D and production are almost at the forefront of the world.

Fu Sheng, chairman of Orion Star, once said in an interview that the robotics industry will become very large in ten years. We put forward the concept of "really useful", hoping that robots can really come in handy, not just cool at the exhibition. After showing one or two times, there will be no more text. "But making robots is not easy. At present, the entire robotics industry is at an early stage of development. When artificial intelligence companies are making robots, there is no mature technical model and business model to refer to."

At the same time, the "Artificial Intelligence Helps the New Crown Epidemic Prevention and Control Research Report" report also pointed out that there are still some weak links in the current application of artificial intelligence, including insufficient data accumulation, mixed product quality, and intelligence. There is still room for improvement. , Basic technology accumulation and insufficient ability to deal with complex scenarios, there is still a big gap between the service robots that people expect to be able to perform general and complex tasks.

It can be said that the sudden epidemic has boosted the intelligent development and application of the medical industry. On the one hand, the new opportunities brought by hospitals face the escalating demand for sensory control. Advanced modes such as intelligent disinfection and contactless delivery will gradually become the new normal of hospital management. The disinfection and protection of intelligent disinfection robots can be combined into one. Greatly improve the safety factor; on the other hand, it brings challenges, such as how to deepen the application of robotics and artificial intelligence technology, and improve the stability and reliability of the application, so that related technologies can replace medical staff and reduce medical affairs in certain high-risk scenarios. The risk of personnel, this also requires continuous exploration.
