The performance of the global special robots continues to increase and the intelligence continues to increase

"This robot will truly achieve long-range non-human exposure to explosives. Its successful development will play an important role in the practical application of anti-terrorism explosives." Recently, a new product launch was held in the Zhongguancun Rongzhi Special Robot Industry Alliance. At the meeting, the secretary-general of the alliance, Xiaodong Chen, evaluated the “JG-I King Kong Intelligent EOD Robot” developed by the alliance member companies.

According to Liu Chunmei, chief engineer of Henan Jingang Intelligent Robot Technology Co., Ltd., the JG-I diamond robot is a new type of explosive robot that can be used for long-distance unmanned explosive operations for suspicious objects of small volume explosions. It has its own explosion-proof ball/canister and can be remotely controlled. It combines functions such as reconnaissance, dismantling, grabbing, destruction, and safe transportation of suspected explosive devices. This robot has upgraded the fully-controlled transport robot to a partially autonomous system capable of handling non-contact, long-distance, and full-flow hazardous materials.

"This robot can be widely used in dense public places such as airports, stations, subways and docks, as well as in the narrow spaces such as corridors, stairs, and rooms, as well as the disposal of mines and unexploded ordnance and live ammunition training. Liu Chunmei introduced.

Chen Xiaodong believes that in the future, the explosives robot will develop more intelligently, and the explosives will be discovered and removed on site. As the development continues, the EOD robot will achieve full autonomy and accurate elimination of explosives with voice interaction.

This new type of e-disaster robot shows the trend of upgrading the intelligence of current special robots. It is understood that special robots are advanced robots other than industrial robots that are used in non-manufacturing industries and serve humans, including service robots, underwater robots, entertainment robots, military robots, and agricultural robots. At present, the domestic special robotics industry is facing the dual challenges of technology and market. The technical threshold is high, the development cycle is long, and the market is relatively subdivided.

In recent years, the performance of the global special robots has continued to increase, and the intelligence has been continuously upgraded. It is predicted that in 2017, the global market for special robots will reach US$5.6 billion; by 2020, the global market for special robots will reach US$7.7 billion, and the average annual growth rate from 2016 to 2020 will be 12%.

According to experts, current special robots have a certain level of autonomous intelligence and have been able to complete such tasks as positioning, navigation, obstacle avoidance, tracking, two-dimensional code recognition, scene perception recognition, and behavioral prediction. As the intelligence and environmental adaptability of special robots are continuously enhanced, they have very broad applications in many fields such as military, riot protection, firefighting, mining, construction, transportation, security monitoring, space exploration, explosion protection, and pipeline construction. prospect
