Flexible intelligence: a watershed in the evolution of industrial robots

In 2021, the robot track is hot. According to incomplete statistics, in November alone, there have been more than 17 related financings in the field of robotics, and the financing projects exceeding 100 million yuan have exceeded double digits. Under the frantic pursuit of capital, the Robot Industry will usher in a new round of explosion in 2021. A large number of first-line investment institutions are intensively scanning the robot track, and new projects are also springing up like mushrooms.
Looking at a longer timeline, my country’s robot industry is developing rapidly, with a compound annual growth rate of about 15%. In 2020, the operating income of the robot industry has exceeded 100 billion yuan. Among them, the output of Industrial Robots has exceeded 210,000 units. According to the data of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the density of manufacturing robots has reached 246 units per 10,000 people, which is twice the global average. In the industrial field, the process of machines replacing humans has begun to change from quantitative change to qualitative change. According to Yang Yiming, the founder and CEO of Moying Technology, the big market for robots in the future will appear in in-depth application scenarios that require higher-end and intelligence.
The evolution of industrial robots is at a watershed
“Since around 2013, my country’s robot industry has developed very rapidly, and entrepreneurs and scholars continue to put forward the view that ‘a certain year is the first year of robots’. For example, many people regard 2013 as the first year of robot development, because that year began China is the world’s largest Industrial Robot market; some people regard 2021 as the first year of robots, because the epidemic has pushed everyone’s awareness of robots to a new level.” Yang Yiming told the “China Electronics News” reporter, “Currently, Technology and industry are developing. Industrial manipulators, collaborative robots, AGV, AMR, food delivery robots, explosion-proof robots, etc. are increasing in product and scale. Correspondingly, the field of robots is also increasing, including 3C, semiconductor, biomedicine, aerospace and other fields.”
However, compared with foreign advanced levels, China’s robot industry still has problems such as insufficient technology accumulation, weak industrial foundation, and lack of high-end supply. The recently released “14th Five-Year Plan for the Development of the Robot Industry” proposes that by 2025, my country will become the
