In a significant step towards accelerating the development of humanoid robots, Beijing has recently established a dedicated innovation center. The Beijing Humanoid Robot Innovation Center, officially registered at the Beijing Economic-Technological Development Area, is a collaborative effort by companies specializing in the production of complete robots, core components, and large robot models.
Recognizing the need for a comprehensive approach, the center will focus on both hardware and software development, aiming to address urgent industry challenges such as the operation control system and open-source operating systems. This initiative will help streamline the technology supply chain and promote the industrialization of humanoid robots.
According to Su Guobin, Deputy Head of the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Economy and Information Technology, Beijing already possesses significant resources in the robotics field. The city has a national robot inspection and testing platform, a national robot standardization technical committee, and plans to establish the Beijing Robot Industry Development Fund. Additionally, Beijing is in the process of building a shared processing center that will cater to robot processing and manufacturing needs.
By 2025, China aims to establish a robust innovation system for humanoid robots. The country plans to nurture a range of small and medium-sized enterprises specializing in the humanoid robot market, equipped with cutting-edge technologies. Furthermore, the government envisions the emergence of two to three humanoid robot companies that will have a strong global influence, as outlined in a guideline issued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
This strategic move by Beijing underscores China’s ambition to position itself as a global leader in humanoid robot technology. With a unified approach, coordinated efforts, and a focus on innovation, Beijing’s Humanoid Robot Innovation Center is set to play a pivotal role in catapulting the industry forward.
