The 2021 World Robot Conference was held at the Beijing Etrong International Convention and Exhibition Center in the Beijing Economic and Technological Development Area (BDA) from Sept 10 to 13, featuring more than 500 products from more than 110 companies.

A group of special volunteers came to the convention – safety inspectors, cleaners, and leaflet distributors. They were robots that could be seen inside and outside the venue, forming a unique landscape.

In the Surgerii endoscopy robot exhibition area, a group of visitors held their breath as they watched four small surgical tools stretch and contract to simulate a minimally invasive surgical operation. This operation was controlled by staff members in front of the main control trolley one meter away. 

According to Beijing Surgerii Technology Co., Ltd., their endoscopy robot completed the first robot radical prostatectomy in China this March.

Talking humanoid robots, quadruped robots running on the floor, and wearable exoskeletons... Walking into the prologue hall of the World Robot Conference, these star exhibits caught people's eyes and brought scenes from science fiction movies to life.

A robotic arm used on China's space station is the country's most intelligent and complex example of space manufacturing.

Its deployment length is 10.2 meters and can carry up to 25 tons of weight. Meanwhile, the arm mimics the seven degrees of freedom of the human arm.

Other exhibits included agricultural picking robots and special robots.
