The continuous development of the digital economy is driving the robotics industry to become a hot spot. According to data from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, in the first half of 2023, China's industrial robot production reached 222,000 sets, a year-on-year increase of 5.4%;the production of serving robots was 3.53 million sets, a year-on-year increase of 9.6%.
As a leading domestic commercial serving robot company, Yunji Technology stated at the "Yunji UP service platform global launch" conference that robots are entering the 3.0 era. From being purely "workers" who can only perform single functions, robots have evolved into a "smart service team," and robot systems have upgraded from single-machine operations to "multi-machine collaboration" and "human-robot collaboration."
Especially in the context of high-quality service in hotels, the robot form of Yunji UP service platform is characterized by "flexible chassis calling and multiple compartments working together." One chassis can carry multiple compartments for delivering items, sweeping the floor, delivering linen, delivering meals, collecting garbage, and other tasks, achieving "one machine with multiple functions, time-sharing reuse." It can achieve 24/7 autonomous delivery and charging, and can also be connected to food delivery mini-programs and food delivery lockers, realizing digital delivery without human involvement. It is also matched with a more complete digital system and organizes and collaborates robot teams through an AI brain, thereby improving overall efficiency and bringing new possibilities for digital services in the hotel industry.
Smarter robots require more powerful brains. In the 3.0 era of robots, UNISOC provides a technological foundation for collaborative human-robot ecosystems with its 5G chip platform,T820. Yunji Technology's latest robot uses the high-performance UNISOC 5G SoC chip platform T820. UNISOC T820 is based on advanced 6nm EUV process, integrates high-performance application processors, and has built-in financial-grade security solutions. It adopts a new generation of high-energy-efficient NPU+VDSP architecture that vertically optimizes computing power. The NPU computing power reaches 8 TOPS, an increase of 67% compared to the previous generation, fully unleashing its powerful computing power and leading the industry in energy efficiency.
In terms of AI capabilities, the T820 is equipped with a new AI computing platform, providing an integrated software, hardware, and algorithm solution for a full-stack AI solution, supporting quantization of model weight and activation value with various low-bit precision for different data accuracies. T820 supports mainstream training frameworks in the industry and supports 200+ mainstream neural network operators, providing a convenient development, access, and debugging environment for more user-friendly and intelligent use. T820 fully unleashes AI capabilities in all scenarios, supporting rich AI applications such as image super-resolution, video enhancement, semantic segmentation, object detection, and text recognition, helping customers quickly build exclusive AI applications and greatly reducing end-to-end deployment time, thus improving the user experience.
With the support of T820 5G high-speed networks, real-time interaction between the robot front-end and the central system has allowed the AI computing power that used to require local processing to be transferred to the backend cloud, significantly reducing the computational load on the robot's front-end. The vast data perceived by the robot can also be instantly transmitted back to the processing center to provide faster, more accurate, and comprehensive AI performance, enhancing its flexibility.
Yunji Techonology will continue to adhere to the principles of starting from application needs, constantly refining its products and service models, and contributing new energy to the development of the Chinese robotics industry, the digitization of hotels, and the multi-scenario application of robots.
