Behind the "explosion" of service robots is a new blue ocean of industry

meal delivery robots

mobile three in one disinfection robot. At 7:30 a.m., Noah, the hospital logistics robot, was waiting at the outpatient specimen receiving area. Aunt Gongqin put the sorted specimens into its stomach by category. We provide customers with various choices. Noah then set out, passing through the biochemical immunization room, PCR (polymerase chain reaction) laboratory, manual immunization room and microorganism room. When the staff of each department heard the voice reminder, they knew Noah was coming. They would swipe their cards to open their stomachs and take out the samples they needed to deal with in turn. After the delivery, Noah will return to the delivery point for self disinfection. A cycle will take about 15 to 20 minutes

no contact, high efficiency and anti infection. The advantages of robots are highlighted in the epidemic. In the first quarter of this year, a number of robot enterprises in Shanghai had a burst of orders. For example, Noah robot has worked in more than ten hospitals in Shanghai, such as Ruijin Hospital, public health center, Tongren Hospital, etc. New robot application scenarios triggered by the epidemic continue to emerge. Experts say that this will not only drive a wave of robot market sales, but also contain a new blue ocean of industry related to thousands of households

hot service robots

orders increased 10 times year-on-year

meet for the first time, talk freely for two hours, watch products for ten minutes, sign contracts immediately, and pick up the goods in full. This is a message recently sent by zhangjianzheng, the founder of Shanghai Sazhi Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd., to the circle of friends. The market heat of the company's three in one disinfection robot can be seen. Originally, dozens of units were sold in half a year, but now there are hundreds of orders in a month

since the full resumption of work at the end of February, Shanghai Ti Mi Robot Technology Co., Ltd. has recovered to the production capacity before the Spring Festival, and the order volume has increased 10 times year-on-year. In the past two months, hundreds of disinfection, isolation ward service and medical material management robots produced by titanium rice have been sticking to the front line of anti epidemic in more than 200 designated hospitals for COVID-19 in China. In response to the surging market demand, the company, which has only been established for 5 years, is planning to expand its robot production base

recently, the robot team of the 21st Research Institute of China Electronics Technology Corporation (hereinafter referred to as the 21st Institute) in Shanghai has also received a batch of new customers from hospitals, educational institutions, business office buildings and other fields. Wangweijun, an engineer of 21 Institute, said that according to the current order receiving situation, it is expected that the order volume of last year will be completed in half a year

according to the classification of application scenarios, robots can be divided into industrial robots, service robots and special robots. Logistics robots and disinfection robots, whose sales have soared due to the epidemic, belong to the category of service robots. Why did they catch fire first

zhengjunqi, President of Shanghai robotics Industrial Technology Research Institute, said that unlike technology driven industrial robots, service robots are largely market driven. Whoever can provide fixed application scenarios and obtain large-scale market inspection opportunities can obtain opportunities for rapid development

the clearer the application scenario is,

the faster a new species of robot will appear.

the disinfection robot was not an inherent variety of the robot family, but was disinfected in the war epidemic application scenario 2 Provide stress value and strain value. Its two core technologies, mobile and disinfection, are quite mature. When they are combined, they become disinfection robots. The application scenario determines how the technical modules are integrated and integrated. Zhengjunqi said

the more new demands and the more fixed demand scenarios, the more likely it is to produce new robot species. For robot enterprises, this epidemic provides such an opportunity. Six years ago, Shanghai zhihuilin Medical Technology Co., Ltd. started from a hospital logistics distribution robot and continued to cultivate hospital service scenarios. Now, the Noah robot developed by them has realized the functions of automatically getting on and off the elevator, opening the door, avoiding obstacles and so on, and can meet the transportation needs of 90% of the scenarios in the hospital. In order to fight the epidemic, the hospital put forward new requirements for Noah: it can thoroughly disinfect itself after passing through the polluted area. Soon, the company successfully unlocked this function, Noah also upgraded again, and received purchase orders from many hospitals

under the pressure of market demand and application scenarios, various technical modules constituting the robot will be automatically integrated to quickly form products. The three in one disinfection robot of Shanghai Sazhi Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd. is an integrated solution launched according to the specific needs of customers through the technical integration of three enterprises that originally produced purification equipment, disinfection robot and disinfection water respectively. The robots that integrate these technologies may only be dressed up from the home service robots that walk into thousands of households

the most abundant application scenarios

increase investment in scientific research and innovation

China has great potential in the service robot market

according to the data from the global robot industry alliance, China has surpassed Japan to become the world's largest robot market in 2013. However, there is still a big gap between China and the world average (55 sets) in the number of robots per 10000 workers

many industry experts believe that among the three types of robots, the service robot is the one most likely to enter thousands of households. The outbreak opportunity of Chinese robots is to serve the robot market. The reason why zhengjunqi made such a judgment is that first, China started in this field not late and has a small gap with foreign countries; Second, the demand for service robots is driven by the market, and China is the country with the richest robot application scenarios

enterprises that were hesitant to use robots have also begun to enter the market. Shijinhao, director of institute 21, also clearly felt the explosion of the robot market. Recently, in addition to busy receiving orders, 21 institutes are still making technical reserves for the upcoming home service robots; Shentong Metro is entrusting Shanghai robot industry technology research institute to develop a cleaning robot, which needs to master a variety of skills such as disinfection and cleaning inside and outside the vehicle; In the future, the hospital's logistics distribution and cleaning are also expected to be contracted by robots.
