SIAT Win WU WENJUN Artificial Intelligence Science and Technology Award
7th WU WENJUN artificial intelligence science and technology award ceremony was hold at Jiangsu on Dec. 23th, two research achievements of Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Science (SIAT) won the Second Award for the artificial intelligence technology invention and the Third Award for natural science respectively.
“Key technology and application of outdoor fully automatic mobile robot”, from WU Xinyu, Researcher of Institute of Advanced Integration Technology, Center for Intelligent Bionic, and CHENG Jun, Researcher from Laboratory for Human Machine Control, won the Second Award for the artificial intelligence technology invention. The research results will break through the key technologies of outdoor autonomous mobile robot's environmental perception, location and navigation, planning and other key technologies, and form a series of products of intelligent automatic mower, and build the internationally famous mower brand "WORX". In 2016, sales exceeded 50 thousand units and became the second largest supplier of smart lawn mower in the world. The research results have played an important role in the demonstration and promotion of the industrial application of the outdoor fully autonomous mobile robot in China.
“Accurate orthodontic diagnosis and treatment robot”, from XIA Zeyang, won the Third Award for natural science. This study is expected to promote “the orthodontic treatment from the experience of diagnosis and treatment mode of trial and error based on the transition” to the "accurate diagnosis model can be predicted”, so as to improve the therapeutic effect, shorten orthodontic treatment period and reduce the cost of treatment has important clinical and social significance and potential economic value.
