Without going out, the mobile logistics robot can send the distribution box carrying the owner’s takeout and express to the door, and the owner can take it by himself when he opens the door, avoiding the hidden danger of outsiders entering and leaving the house and the trouble of taking it downstairs.
In the epidemic shrouded and everyone isolated environment, the use of logistics robots seems to minimize the probability of direct contact between people. It is reported that this artificial intelligence home product developed by hatch intelligence is expected to land in Guangzhou Ivy community developed on the spot this year.
Wan Jiao, the relevant person in charge of hatch intelligence, revealed at the recent press conference that the current target is the “Ai + habitat” smart home form. The background server of the smart home is connected with the app to connect the smart hardware at home and the external smart devices mainly in the community public area. At present, in addition to the intelligent logistics robot, there are driverless commuter vehicles: “This kind of commuter can drive at a low speed in the community to solve the traffic problem of owners in the park after the diversion of people and vehicles in some large communities.”
Different from large logistics robots in industrial parks and logistics parks, smart home logistics robots pay more attention to the community scene in the closed community, and their functionality is more “home” – in addition to helping collect express and takeout, the designer even hopes that the robot can replace the owner in the vegetable market in the future, and can deliver vegetables home in the community vegetable market after setting.
Yang Jieming, R & D director of hatch logistics robot, introduced that at present, the logistics robot adopts single line radar and dense multi-source fusion positioning technology, which can monitor the road and road condition information in a relatively complex and closed community, so as to realize the running and positioning of the robot in the community.
In fact, this entrepreneurial smart home development enterprise aims at the market segment of community to family scene functions. In addition to logistics robots and unmanned commuter vehicles, there are also health service robots for health monitoring and intelligent vision technology solutions that can protect community safety and identify and monitor personnel.
It is worth noting that as the real estate development approaches the ceiling of large-scale development, the direction of real estate enterprises for residential development is changing from just demand to improved demand. In addition to the hardcover market, some real estate enterprises are also trying to take a share in the smart home market.
In November 2019, Shimao, Xuhui, Midea, COSCO and other enterprises conducted strategic cooperation with euribo, a leader in the smart home industry; Earlier, Vanke Hangzhou also cooperated with Alibaba cloud IOT to implement the whole house intelligent system and smart Park scheme on Alibaba cloud link platform; Country garden invests in the green Smart Home Industrial Park project in Xinyang.
Hatch cooperates with the field group. At present, the landing test community is mainly focused on the field projects in Guangzhou and Chongqing.
The foresight Industry Research Institute released the report on market foresight and investment strategy planning of China’s smart home equipment industry released earlier. It shows that the scale of China’s smart home market is close to 400 billion yuan in 2018, and it is expected that the scale of China’s smart home market will exceed 580 billion yuan in 2020.
However, compared with the traditional home, the smart home market still faces great challenges. In particular, whether the market premium is acceptable, the industry standard is imperfect, the landing performance is difficult to fulfill, the difference between the design concept and the mass production after landing, as well as equipment maintenance and upgrading, are still common problems in the industry.
Wan Jiao believes that 2017-2019 is the stage of “product certification” of hatch intelligence, and has gradually developed five product lines: “the goal in 2020 is to complete scenario certification, which needs to be implemented in relevant scenarios after community delivery, and achieve stable operation and service iteration.” she said that on this basis, scale certification can be achieved in at least 3-5 years.
It is reported that at present, hatch intelligence is still aimed at the front loading market of the home market, that is, it is mainly aimed at the b-end market. Before the delivery of the community, smart devices and software have been used frequently. The relevant person in charge admitted that due to people’s different needs for smart home, the current demand in the C-end market is still difficult to meet, which is a great challenge for enterprises to achieve scale growth.
After entering the community, it still takes a long time to test whether the smart home products can operate effectively, achieve the design objectives and finally achieve mass production.
