From droids to drones, China robot expo unveils latest in robot technology

The robot makers at China robot expo said that they are expanding fast beyond the industrial droids with innovations for the future.

The World Robot Conference 2022, also called China Robot Expo, is being held in Beijing from 18 to 21 August. Around 130 Chinese and foreign exhibitors have been showing off the latest innovations in robot technology, including drones, robot servers, exoskeletons for the health care sector, and humanoid robots used in search-and-rescue missions,

The robot makers at the China robot expo said they are expanding fast beyond the industrial droids with innovations that can care for the elderly in a rapidly aging society or deliver hotel room services. 

Industrial robots that can help lift boxes or assemble cars account for the bulk of sales in the world’s biggest market, i.e., China. Now, Chinese robot makers are increasingly eyeing the health care and service sectors due to the reformed government policies that aim to turn China into an innovation hub by 2025.
