Robot industry

Updated: 2022-02-08

The total number of robots used in Wuhan Economic & Technological Development Zone -- also known as the WEDZ -- is about 3,500, and the density of robots is up to 100 per 10,000 people. This is higher than the national average level, but it is quite far away from the level in developed countries. 

As the main battleground for Wuhan’s industrial economic development, WEDZ not only provides a strong industrial foundation for robot development, but also provides an applications market for robot products in the auto industry, as well as the home appliances industry and other industries.

The zone plans to develop robot industrial town projects in its Smart Eco-city and General Aviation and Satellite Industrial Park, according to local officials.

The new towns will develop industrial robots, service robots and special robots, as well as attract a group of robot companies with intellectual property rights and international competitiveness -- building an industrial chain that integrates robot R & D, testing, manufacturing, systems integration and applications services.

According to the plan, the robot industrial towns will have multiple functions, including serving government affairs, as well as in transportation and security. They will have residential homes, production plants, new retail facilities, education, life services, medical treatment and smart energy.

Officials said the WEDZ has a solid foundation in robot research and development, production, as well as in applications.

They added that more than 40 companies in the zone are in the process of transforming and upgrading to smart factories and more than 200 companies are about to start their intelligent transformation.
