China is the largest market in the world robotics industry, In 2017, the production of industrial robots exceeded 130000 units, an increase of 68.1% over the previous year, and this rapid growth trend continues. At the same time, there is still a considerable gap between China's robots and the world's advanced level, which is also an indisputable fact. From August 15 to 19, with the 2018 World robotics conference, scientists, eager investors and the most imaginative "geeks" from all over the world gathered in Beijing to give advice on the development of Chinese robots and imagine the opportunities and cooperation in the robot era

Miao Wei, Minister of the Ministry of industry and information technology:
sharing robot development opportunities with countries around the world
at present, a large number of new technologies, new products and new production methods relying on robots have emerged, becoming an important driving force for a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial change, which not only provides an important breakthrough for the development of advanced manufacturing industry, but also provides a strong support for further improving human well-being. According to the statistics and analysis of the International Federation of robotics, the scale of the global robot industry in 2017 has exceeded US $25billion, an increase of more than 20%, and is expected to reach US $30billion in 2018
China attaches great importance to the development of the robot industry, and has made positive progress in core technology research and development, industrial chain construction, application field expansion, regional agglomeration development, etc. Over the past five years, the average annual growth rate of China's robot industry has been close to 30%. In 2017, the 10000 ton anode material project of Dacheng Xinneng was started to nearly $7billion, of which the output of industrial robots exceeded 130000. Although the robot industry has developed rapidly, it also faces many challenges, such as the core technology still needs to be broken through, and the legal and regulatory system needs to be improved
in the future, we will strive to promote the high-quality development of the robot industry. In this process, we will always practice the concept of open development, widely listen to suggestions from all parties, actively learn from useful experience, and carry out extensive and in-depth cooperation in policy formulation, technology research, product development, market promotion, integration of industry and finance, talent training, etc., so as to jointly create a new system of global collaborative innovation and form an international and open community of robot interests. China has the largest robot market demand in the world. Enterprises from all over the world are welcome to share with us. The main responsibility of the leading group is to review the overall deployment and important development opportunities for promoting the development of the new material industry, share the development burden, and work together to promote the high-quality and sustainable development of the robot industry
Rezia morfino, President of the Italian robotics and Automation Association and consultant of the European Commission:
the development of robots requires Transnational Cooperative Research.
"Horizon 2020" is a cooperation plan for robots across the EU and also an action roadmap. It mainly has four priority areas: medical care, infrastructure inspection and maintenance, agricultural production and agile manufacturing. At the same time, we also pay attention to the core technology of robots, which is the main research direction of the EU robot field in 2018-2, which should definitely expand the use of biodegradable plastics in 2020, in order to make the machine system more automated. These core technologies focus on the following aspects: artificial intelligence, cognitive ability, mechatronics, social human-computer interaction, and model-based setting and configuration tools
"Horizon 2020" plan aims to make new technologies improve people's lives and improve people's quality of life. In 2018, we also explored some new technologies, especially those involving artificial intelligence, digital security and interconnection, and developed together with the past biological function technology and life science technology
our innovation system framework covers private institutions, public institutions, researchers, educators and non-governmental organizations, sharing results, improving people's awareness of innovation activities, realizing risk sharing and benefit sharing, and creating a culture of benefit innovation. We are living in a new era. Many challenges can not be solved by a single enterprise or even a country alone. The common challenges faced by mankind are far greater than differences and contradictions. For example, the development of robots raises many new problems that need to be solved jointly. We also need to further open up and promote internationalization, and invest in the most cutting-edge Transnational Cooperative Research to maximize the role of "Horizon 2020"
qudaokui, founder and President of Xinsong Robot Automation Co., Ltd.:
China's robot market has reached a new high in history.
China has become the world's largest robot market since 2013. Last year, it created a new high in history: first, the capacity of the market has reached a new high, exceeding 140000 units; Second, the growth rate has reached the highest speed of the development of Chinese robots in recent years, with an average growth rate of nearly 60%. Now, the total volume of Chinese robot market accounts for 1/3 of the global total
from the distribution of international and domestic brands, domestic brands occupy the main advantage in relatively simple robot fields such as coordinate robots and parallel robots, but foreign brands still dominate in high-end robot fields such as multi joint robots. On the whole, there is still a big gap between domestic robots and high-end applications. However, the application of domestic industrial robots continues to expand, involving 39 industry categories and 110 industry categories in the national economy. That is to say, industrial robots are now almost in all areas of the manufacturing industry. The application scope of robots is becoming wider and wider, and the penetration rate is becoming higher and higher
at the same time, it should be noted that with the breakthrough and development of technology, robots have entered a new era, which is also called the robot 2.0 era. The main sign is that the robot has developed from the past measurement indicators of machinery and equipment, such as speed, accuracy, load and reliability, to independent decision-making ability, movement ability, operation ability and interaction ability. The new generation of robots has actually formed a new ecosystem, emphasizing its flexibility, intelligence and self adaptability to the environment. The change and breakthrough of this technology will endow the robot with higher performance, function and intelligence, and bring a broader space for development
zhangjihong, deputy director of the Management Committee of Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone and member of the Standing Committee of Daxing District Party committee:
Beijing will continue to strengthen the innovation of robot technology.
this year is the third time that the world robot conference has been held in Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone. Thanks to the construction of robot ecological industry, more and more robot enterprises have landed in Yizhuang on the northeast border. The number of robot enterprises here has increased from 35 three years ago to 153 now. Last year, the output value of the robot industry in Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone increased by more than 50%, and the output value accounted for more than 1/4 of Beijing
throughout the world, the robot industry has attracted more and more attention from all countries. Europe, the United States, Japan and other major economies in the world have raised the robot industry as a national strategy. In order to comply with the industrial evolution trend, in accordance with the national strategic guidance, and around the construction of a national science and technology innovation center with global influence, Beijing formulated the guiding opinions on the development of high-precision and top-notch industries at the end of last year, which established confidence, provided basis and pointed out the direction for the development zone to further build the robot industry. We will strengthen the innovation of robot technology, strengthen the research and development of three key technologies, namely, environmental perception, autonomous positioning and motion control, and three core products, namely, controllers, reducers and drivers, strengthen the research and development and innovation of major technical equipment, make breakthroughs in the integration of Intelligent Manufacturing Technology, and promote the construction of robot automatic production lines, digital workshops and intelligent factories with independent intellectual property rights
in the application of innovative technologies, we will give full play to the industrial advantages of the capital, focus on the national aviation, aerospace, medical and other fields, and vigorously develop special robots and service robots.
