Robots with 5G connectivity take the spotlight at an industrial conference14. January 2021
As China continues to expand its 5G network, industry is also increasingly discovering the benefits of the technology. A typical application of 5G is connected robots, which are becoming more autonomous and intelligent. For example, at the 2020 China 5G+ Industrial Internet Conference in Wuhan, two particular robots attracted the attention of visitors. The robots welcomed visitors and were able to answer basic questions as well as guide guests to specific locations. The robots are manufactured and operated by Chinese company Cloud Minds, which develops intelligent and cloud-connected robots for human interaction.
In addition to interactive conversations, the two robots can also complete motion sequences such as handshakes, hugs and dancing. By applying artificial intelligence, cloud computing and 5G technology, the robots can also recognize people’s facial expressions and emotions and engage in dialogue accordingly. Thus, the robots can be used to welcome guests, guide people, and provide entertainment. The actual “thinking” of the robots, or the computational work, is done in a cloud environment and sent in real time using the 5G network.
Last year, when the city of Wuhan was severely affected by the COVID 19 outbreak, Cloud Minds robots assisted workers in hospitals there. The robots were able to ask patients about their symptoms, take their temperature, as well as entertain them during waiting times. According to Cloud Minds, the robots were also successfully used to entertain patients while they were placed in isolation and quarantine areas. Robots are subject to mandatory certification in China. The CCC here stands for China Compulsory Certificate and is comparable to the European CE system, but there are important differences. Products requiring certification may only be imported into China, sold in China and used in business activities in China after the product has undergone CCC certification. We are pleased to advise you on the scope and requirements of a China CCC certification without obligation.
For more information on how CCC certification, the CCC Self-Declaration and voluntary CCAP or CQC certification may affect your company, or for more information about CCC certification in general, the process, and the associated costs, please visit our website and our News Section where you will find current updates twice a week.
