X-Creator Challenge Opens for Global Submissions Centering on Intelligent Equipment Solutions for Emergency and Disaster Rescue
XUZHOU, China, Feb. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire-Asianet/ --

XCMG, leading construction machinery manufacturer (000425.SZ) has officially 
launched X-Creator Challenge, the third and upgraded edition of the "XCMG Cup" 
Green Innovation Design Competition, which is composed of two competition 
categories – intelligent road emergency equipment design and geological 
disaster rescue equipment design.

Both categories of the X-Creator Challenge call for groundbreaking equipment 
design ideas to aid emergency and disaster relief/rescue missions after 
earthquakes, landslides, mudslides as well as production accidents, especially 
utilizing intelligent technologies to save life in urgent situations. 
Modification suggestions under the two categories are also encouraged to submit 
for prize winning. 

"In 2020 alone, natural disasters affected approximately 138 million people in 
China so quickly finding solutions to bottleneck problems in disaster relief 
and rescue is of the utmost importance. New technologies such as 5G, 
modularized multi-functional emergency rescue equipment, quick 
disassembly/assembly of equipment as well as remote control are undoubtedly the 
key to further development," said Xiaodong Xu, Deputy GM of XCMG Fire-fighting 
Safety Equipment.

Participants from around the world are now welcome to upload their designs 
online until June. In addition to financial awards and scholarships, 
first-prize winners will be given opportunities to carry out their project with 
universities or enterprises. Excellent contestants from the preliminary rounds 
may receive an interview invitation from XCMG, and exceptional winners may even 
receive offers to join the XCMG team.

X-Creator has set an industrial transformation funding pool totaling 10 million 
yuan (US$ 1.55 million). In addition to complete solution and equipment 
designs, excellent product and function optimization feedback submitted by 
international participants will also be considered for awards. 

Launched in 2016, the XCMG Cup competition is part of XCMG's 14 precisely 
positioned global public welfare projects and a major breakthrough of the 
traditional R&D model to promote technological innovation and encourage young 
talents to push forward the sustainable development of the industry. 

Multiple concepts and innovative ideas from previous competitions have been 
applied in product design and development, including the compact low-noise, 
high-efficacy fan project from the first XCMG Cup, the multi-functional, 
green-powered small excavator design in the second year among others.
