"With a body length of 44.5 centimeters, a wingspan of 68 centimeters, and a weight of only 42 grams..." Accompanied by the host's introduction, two swifts danced elegantly and freely in the air above the exhibition hall, presenting a splendid aerial performance. At this robot conference, the new member of the Festo Bionic Flight family, the BionicSwift, made its debut.

Walking into the booth of Beijing JJC Petroleum Equipment Co, a yellow robot catches the eye. This is the result of patent transformation that won the 24th China Patent Excellence Award — the intelligent drilling robot SW06. It's a highly intelligent, safe, and efficient drilling robot that can be widely used in mobile vehicle-mounted drilling rigs and well-workover machine drilling platforms.

Besides, the robot's integrated joints exhibited for the first time by the Zhejiang Lab has sleek design, integrated functionality. 

On-site staff explained that it employs an integrated and lightweight design approach, possessing characteristics of high torque, high speed, low noise, and quick response, meeting the requirements for legged robot applications.
