? ? ? Wen Gao hosted the morning session and Jianrong Tan kicked off the event by delivering a speechIntelligent Manufacturing and Robotics Applications: Key Technology and Development, where he predicts that the third industry revolution may be around the corner thanks to technological transformations triggered by big data, intelligent manufacturing and mobile network in the context of the impactful contribution of information technology to social and economic development. The so called Industry 4.0, a technology revolution pioneered by information technology, will influence manufacturing in digitalization, intelligence, personification and greening.
Mr. Tan also proposes that the core issue in manufacturing is to construct and cash in on knowledge database. Manufacturing is intended to elevate our overall industrial chains, and it is a service based on a value chain. Later, Bangkui Fan spoke aboutThe Development of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Systems.
