Expo 2020 Dubai: UBTECH Panda Robot turns heads at China Pavilion
SHENZHEN, China, Oct. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

Expo 2020 Dubai, the first world expo since the outbreak of the COVID-19 
pandemic, and the first expo of its kind held in the Middle East, has 
officially opened on October 1st. With exhibitors from 192 countries, the Expo 
is expected to attract 25 million visitors over six months. 

During the event, UBTECH's proprietary Panda Robot and Walker X, the large 
humanoid service robots, made their official appearance at the China Pavilion, 
one of the event's largest exhibition structures on the expo site. The pavilion 
is called "The Light of China", which symbolizes reunion and hope. Both Panda 
Robot and Walker X's presence at the pavilion demonstrate the latest 
achievements in China's intelligent manufacturing and technological innovation 
on the world stage, as well as the country's significant advances in the field 
of AI. 

As the only Official Partner of AI Robotics for the China Pavilion at Expo 2020 
Dubai, UBTECH Panda Robot and Walker X are providing on-site intelligent 
services in several scenarios.

Created exclusively for the event in the image of China's iconic national 
animal, UBTECH Panda Robot incorporated technologies based on the humanoid 
service robot Walker. The friendly Panda Robot serves as an Ambassador of Peace 
and Friendship for the China Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, encouraging guests to 
take photos, shoot videos, and interact with it. 

With 41 "joints", UBTECH Panda Robot can perform Tai Chi, demonstrate its 
expertise at Chinese calligraphy as well as other traditional Chinese arts and 
practices. The robot serves as an entry point to provide information on smart 
cities, agriculture techniques and environmentally friendly practices that the 
entire country of China leads with the way in.

According to China Trade News, Larry Ng, Commissioner-General of the Singapore 
Pavilion, said that he was deeply touched to meet UBTECH Panda Robot, as 
Jiajia, a giant panda in Singapore, recently gave birth to her cub. 

Entering the Exploration and Discovery exhibits, the popular "Intelligent 
Guide" Walker X robot skillfully introduced guests to the overall vision and 
technological achievements that China has achieved in space exploration, such 
as the China Space Station, Chang'e-5 Mission, Tianwen 1 Interplanetary Mission 
and BeiDou Satellite Network. 

This Exploration and Discovery tour drew significant attention among attendees, 
including Carolina Peguero, the director of the Dominican Republic Pavilion, 
who remarked that "China has made great achievements in space exploration." The 
director also added that he looked forward to China actively sharing experience 
with other countries.

Beyond robotics, China's Artificial Intelligence are helping to prevent further 
spread of COVID-19 and to assist in the recovery of industrial production as 
well as that of normal life. In 2021, UBTECH's UV disinfection robot ADIBOT has 
been deployed in various locations worldwide, including, Business Centers in 
Netherlands,  COVID hospitals in Japan, and a quarantine hotel in China. 

UBTECH also supports AI education in over 40 countries across 6 continents. The 
company has provided AI-driven and robot-assisted education programs to more 
than 3,000 schools in China, making it the world's largest provider of AI and 
robotics education solutions that integrate software and hardware.

UBTECH is always exploring further product applications in education, 
entertainment, logistics and other verticals, with the goal of tackling key 
social challenges while meeting major social needs. As it expands its global 
footprint, the company is fully committed to serving the world with 
cutting-edge technologies and helping to build a better, shared future for all 
of mankind.
