As the largest event in the field of robotics science in China with the highest standard and most affluent international elements, the WRC has been held for 6 years, and become an important brand to integrate science, technology with industrial circles and connect China to the rest of the world as well.
Under the theme of "Cooperate to obtain win-win results", the WRC 2022 consisted of 3 main sections, i.e. World Forum on Robots, World Robot Expo, and World Robot Contest (WRCC), and included 3 thematic summits, 40 plus parallel forums and series of supporting activities both online and on spot.
More than 300 distinguished guests from 15 countries and regions were invited to share research achievements and development trends in robot industry. They also talked about fancy intelligent society in the future.
This year’s forum was ignited by humanoid robots, bionic robots and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) stepping on the stage to deliver speeches.
World Forum on Robots
The 40,000 square meter exhibition halls were swarmed with fire-fighting robots that can work in extreme high temperature, intelligent bionic robot fish swimming around in the pool, UAVs performing aerial stunts, humanoid robots singing melodies, and group robot dogs danced to rythmic beat.
More than 130 tech companies brought about 500 plus exhibits to participate in this year’s expo, 30 plus new products made their debut in the expo, providing visitors with chances to actually feel how robots are changing people’s daily life.
