Chinese high-tech company Elephant Robotics presens its vision for the future of cobots and artificial intelligence
In November, there were many expos and exhibitions about robotics worldwide. As one of the famous robotics companies, Elephant Robotics attended actively to show its amazing products and innovative projects.
This month, a lot of international expos were held in China, such as the Reduced Instruction Set Computer （RISC） 40th Anniversary Exhibition, the Talents Innovation & Technology Show, the 18th International Internet of Things Expo (IOTE), the 24th China Hi-Tech Fair, and iFLYTEK 1024 Global Developer Festival.
In these expos, Elephant Robotics showed many products including myCobot, mechArm, myAGV, and the famous companion robotic pets, MarsCat and metaCat. In Talents Innovation & Technology Show, the robotic cats had attracted many visitors no matter elder and children. As the first realistic robotic cat in the world powered by AI, MarsCat can communicate with people through images and achieve the automatic recognition. And with the built-in Raspberry Pi system, it supports to be developed by users. With AI support, metaCat can move and meow realistically based on deep learning technology that mimics the interaction and actions of real cats. The cute appearance design and high interaction deeply won the visitors' love and recognition, and most people agree that the robotic pets are a perfect solution for people who like pets and need companion but are allergic to cat hair.
In the 18th IOTE Expo, Elephant Robotics collaborated with M5Stack and showed their robotic arms in M5 version, which present the multi-layered coverage of the company in the field of internet of things in multiple dimensions.
The Hi-Tech Fair is the largest and most influential science and technology exhibition in China, It is playing an increasingly important role in promoting commercialization, industrialization and internationalization of high-tech achievements as well as promoting economic and technological exchanges and cooperation between countries and regions. Many visitors from around 40 countries came to visit the products and projects of Elephant Robotics, the AI Kit is the most popular project in the exhibition. AI Kit is used to help users to learn the knowledge and applications about artificial intelligence like color and image recognition. Working with the robotic arms like myCobot, mechArm and myPalletizer, it can achieve the recognizing, positioning, and intelligent grabbing.
The team had made a presentation on the spot of exhibition. "Modern technology and artificial intelligence are very hot areas. As a participant in this field, our company has a contribution to make to the prospects of its development. Our lives will be improved through science and technology. One of our goals is to have a variety of robotic arms created by the company to help more people enter the field of robotics." said Lisa Qiu, the company's operations manager.
iFLYTEK 1024 Global Developer Festival is mainly for the global AI developers and related ecological chain entrepreneurs, enthusiasts. As the global strategic partners of iFLYTEK, Elephant Robotics took all robotic products to attend the festival, including the myBuddy, myAGV, roboBeats, which showcased their breakthroughs in intelligent speech and artificial intelligence technology. The amazing products also got a lot of attention from the media reporters including the CCTV. In this festival, the team also won the Best Robot Award and the second place in Real time enganement competition.
Moreover, the team of Zhejiang University had taken the industrial robotic arm, Panda, to attend the Chinese University Intelligent Robot Creative Competition. This competition is one of the most technologically challenging and influential robot competition platforms in China.
Also, Elephant Robotics had participated in many overseas activities. In Japan, the company worked with Switch Science to attend the IROS 2022. As a top conference in intelligent robotics and automation, IROS 2022 provides an international forum for scholars, experts, and enterprises in the field of intelligent robotics from all over the world to discuss the scientific and technological frontier of intelligent robotics and systems. To create more opportunities for communication, Elephant Robotics set up a communication booth at IROS 2022 and showcased the compound robot with myCobot and myAGV.
The company had also attended the game exhibitions in Europe, such as the Polish Game Industry and Koneser Technologicznie. myPalletizer and mechArm showed the human-computer interaction to the visitors and got a lot of attention from many games devlopers.
As an emerging high-tech technology, collaborative and bionic robots have a broad application prospects in scientific research and education, household, commercial applications, and many other industries.Elephant Robotic has always been committed to letting everyone enjoy the robot world, to producing better collaborative and bionic robots as its responsibility so that more people, including individual makers and development teams, can enjoy the convenience brought by science and technology.
