On the second session of China International Import Expo, the intelligence industry giants from all over the world have come up with the top products: the world's largest bucket shovel, the most sophisticated smart chips, the most advanced "wisdom factories." When industry blessings on the Internet, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and other technologies, intelligent manufacturing is not only changing industry, but also changing urban management and everyone's life.
The "first launch" of Intelligent products from changing Industry to changing cities
The equipment exhibition area located at No. 3 and No. 4 of the Shanghai National Convention and Exhibition Center is undoubtedly the most "hard core" of all pavilions. Large business ships, bucket shovels, medium precision machine tools, unmanned collection cards, and then to small chips, software systems. The top intelligent manufacturing systems are unveiled here.
On the 6th, Caterpillar of the United States, one of the top 500 companies in the world, opened its first signing. Walking into the booth, a huge bucket shovel model is very attractive, the length of the moving arm is up to 132.5 meters, there is only one in China at present. As an "old guest" who participated in the Expo for the second time, Caterpillar's exhibits at the Expo include two sets of pioneering engine systems that are widely used in various industries. Staff at the scene told reporters that the two sets of "real machines" have found buyers and will remain in China to continue to "work."
Automation, digitization and intelligence are the general direction of the global manufacturing reform, and the Expo has become the "show field" of these new technologies. In 2016, through a series of intelligent management measures, the Caterpillar Wuxi plant reduced electricity consumption by 20 per cent and reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 4488 tonnes, while production was higher than in 2015.
Not only change industrial production, but also change the management of the city. Swiss industrial giant ABB this year has more exhibitors and more exhibits than last year. At the booth, the staff said that ABB exhibited the "ABB Ability High Precision Gas leak Detection system" for the first time in China, using algorithms and data analysis to provide accurate services based on the Beidou satellite navigation system. It can realize fast, accurate and efficient pipe network "physical examination", effectively ensure the safety of urban gas network, and support the construction of intelligent city.
ABB, which has settled in a super factory in Shanghai, is also following the pace of meticulous management in Shanghai. "artificial intelligence garbage sorting workstation" is on display at the fair. The material pickup master system realizes the accurate tracking of the conveyor chain. The ABB dual-arm cooperative robot YuMi completes the final sorting, and its running data and equipment information are uploaded to the cloud in real time.
"it is very encouraging that China has conveyed its firm confidence in continuing to push forward a higher level of opening up to the outside world." Zhang Zhiqiang, senior vice president and president of ABB Group, said that from the completion of the ABB Xiamen Industrial Center to the construction of the Shanghai Robot Super Factory, from the Open Innovation Center to Future lab, ABB has practiced "in China with solid action." "for China and the world," the long-term commitment to innovative technology to enable the transformation and upgrading of industries, and fully support the vigorous development of China's economy.
Bless 5G, AI and other new technologies Internet into the "second half"
At the second Expo, 5G networks and applications achieved omni-directional penetration, 4 major 5G theme scenarios, 17 5G application projects to promote 5G comprehensive empowerment. Walking in the museum, you can see media workers with 5G mobile phones broadcast live everywhere. Around the Shanghai National Convention and Exhibition Center, with 5G + HD monitoring, AR glasses, service robots, etc., are also helping the subway station intelligent operation, maintenance and service.
With the continuous development of new technologies such as 5G and artificial intelligence, the upstream and downstream industries of intelligent manufacturing are being redefined. At the 2019 Forum on International Cooperation in Intelligent Technology and Industry held on the 6th, Wang Zhijun, vice minister of industry and information technology, said that at present, the intelligent industry is shifting from academia to academia and industry.
"China is the market with the largest number of mobile netizens and the most active online transactions in the world, reflecting the greater willingness of Chinese consumers, industry and government to actively try and adopt new technologies." GE Qun, chairman and senior vice president of Xinsi Technology China, the world's largest provider of integrated circuit design tools, said the chip is an "engine" for intelligent manufacturing, and 5G brings a whole new scene to the chip and related industries.
GE Qun said that in the future, we should not only improve the chip data processing ability, but also develop the chip with the ability to reconstruct, so that it can speed up the expansion of a variety of artificial intelligence application scenarios; At the same time, it is also necessary to develop new brain-like chips or quantum chips to provide smarter, lower energy consumption, and more general-purpose "engine" systems for intelligent manufacturing.
With the blessing of big data, artificial intelligence, 5G and other technologies, the Internet is accelerating into the "second half." "We have always wanted to emphasize the combination of international (Global) and localized (Local) to build a 'Glocal' enterprise." Li Hongquan, president of Hexkang Greater China, said that on tracks such as 5G and artificial intelligence, global companies are on the same starting line. 5G enables large-scale industrial data to be disseminated more accurately and instantly, which also provides the basis for the rapid landing of the industrial Internet.
Li Hongquan said: at present, Hexkang has officially settled in Qingpu, Shanghai. The key layout of the East China headquarters and new industrial groups in the Yangtze River Delta Ecological and Green Integration Development demonstration Zone, and the total investment in the East China headquarters base project is about 2 billion yuan. Including intellectual property center, Chinese Academy of Sciences and headquarters base.
From concept to reality, let Wisdom serve Life in the end
Cutting-edge technology is ultimately for a better life. In the connected aircraft exhibition area of Honeywell, a Fortune 500 company, the JetWave satellite communications system, using a fuselage-mounted antenna system, provides seamless global coverage and a broadband data network of up to 120MB / s. So that passengers can continue to "surf the Internet" while flying into the sky.
There are many cases of using intelligent manufacturing to change lives like this. Compared with the first year of technology accumulation, artificial intelligence and other technologies are more integrated in industrial development, landing applications.
For example, GE Medical artificial Intelligence CT system was first launched in China. This artificial intelligence CT system Apex CT is an American FDA certified system based on deep learning reconstruction algorithm, which can provide doctors with image information that is more conducive to accurate diagnosis. Reduce the use of radiometry and the possibility of missed diagnosis during diagnosis, so as to benefit patients.
As more and more devices have "brains", the era of the Internet of everything is accelerating. In view of the next development of the intelligent industry, Wang Zhijun suggested that we should layout and promote scientific and technological innovation from the perspective of globalization, and encourage and support the upstream and downstream enterprises of the industrial chain to participate in the construction of industrial ecology. In-depth integration into the global intelligent industry innovation system, combined with the division of labor distribution of the industrial chain and the comparative advantages of various countries, to promote the exchange and cooperation of technology research and development, standard formulation, achievement transformation and so on. Aim at industrial demand, agglomerate industry resources, break from basic research, applied research to industrialization of the "valley of death".
