How NXP I.MX8M Leads You To The Cutting Edge Of Artificial Intelligence

- Aug 30, 2018-

On August 15th, the 2018 World Robotics Congress was unveiled at the Beijing International Exhibition Center. More than 160 leading Chinese and foreign robots brought the leading products to the collective, letting the audience directly feel the technology to change their lives.

The "China Robot Industry Development Report (2018)" (hereinafter referred to as the "Report") released by the Chinese Institute of Electronics during the conference shows that the global robot market grew at an average annual rate of 15.1% in 2013-2018, while China's growth rate is this. Double the number. Carol Iruter from McKinsey predicted at the forum that in 2020, China's robot demand will account for 40% of the world.

The "Report" predicts that the global market for robots will reach $29.82 billion in 2018 - $16.82 billion for industrial robots, $5.25 billion for service robots, and $3.75 billion for special robots (for special occasions such as disaster relief and public security). And China's robot market in 2018 is 8.74 billion US dollars, 71% belong to industrial robots, exceeding the world average.

However, most of China's new research robot projects are service categories, which indicates that the future structure will be closer to developed countries. It can also be seen in the exhibition hall that the number of service robots (such as education and entertainment) is no less than that of industrial robots. In 2018, China's service robot market is expected to reach 1.84 billion US dollars, an increase of about 43.9% year-on-year, higher than the global growth rate.

The most sought after in the exhibition area is the robot making coffee on site. The robotic coffee kiosk developed by Cheetah Mobile can use a pair of robotic arms to accurately and accurately prepare a cup of fresh coffee and pull out a beautiful milk.

The "milk tea robot" can produce custom milk tea with the same taste and labor in two minutes; the spider-like special robot can inspect the operation of equipment in complex and dangerous environments; the "versatile" robotic arm will play the piano and write the brush word. 3D printing self-portraits, and accurate sorting of goods... At the "2018 World Robot Congress" which has recently come to a close, the Chinese robot exhibits are dizzying and even more impressive. The future of automation is deepening into all areas of our lives.

NXP's i.MX8M family of application processors based on ARM® Cortex®-A53 and Cortex®-M4 cores deliver industry-leading audio, voice and video processing for consumer home audio to industrial building automation and mobile computers And so on. It is also suitable for applications in artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things.

As the IDH of NXP, Mingyuan Zhirui cooperates closely with NXP technology and products. The newly released core board based on NXP i.MX8M processor has the advantages of multi-core processing, high-quality video, and full 4K UltraHD. Resolution and HDR (Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG provide the highest level of professional audio fidelity with over 20 audio channels, 384KHz per channel.

The NXP i.MX8M Quad features high performance, low power, flexible memory options and high speed interfaces with industry leading audio and video capabilities. The i.MX8M module is the ideal solution for robotics and industrial automation applications. Automate solutions faster and more flexibly on Linux, or use a wide range of available GPIOs to connect to your vision system via a camera interface or securely back up your data over an Ethernet cloud.

The introduction of artificial intelligence technology has brought new changes to the development of robots. The global robot industry is still growing rapidly, and the practical application scenarios of robots continue to expand. New application scenarios and models such as garbage sorting, deep-sea mining, old-age disability, and medical guidance are emerging. Service robots also extend from sweeping and delivering food to emotional, escort, education, rehabilitation, and supermarkets.
