Robots are both key supporting equipment for advanced manufacturing and an important entry point for improving the way people live. Whether it is the industrial robot applied in the manufacturing environment or the service robot applied in the non-manufacturing environment, its theoretical technology level and industrial application is an important sign to measure a country's scientific and technological innovation and high-end manufacturing development level. Made in China 2025 takes robotics as a key development area and vigorously develops the robot industry, which is of great significance to build new advantages of Chinese manufacturing, promote industrial transformation and upgrading, accelerate the building of a manufacturing power and improve people's living standards.
Robotics is an interdisciplinary and technology fusion field, involving machinery, electronics, control, computer, new materials, artificial intelligence and other multidisciplinary fields. Wuhan university of science and technology, the establishment Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems(IRIS),WUST, to establish Wu Ke big in the leading position in the provincial colleges and universities, promote the local economy and the development of science and technology, promote the development of the robot and intelligent system of hubei province industry innovation, promote the wuhan university of science and technology first-class university, the first-class discipline construction, the implementation of the subject development and technology service, and so on is of great significance.
The Institute sets up an expert committee and an advisory committee. The expert committee is composed of professors in robotics related fields organized by the university, and the advisory committee is composed of well-known experts in robotics field at home and abroad and experts from famous robotics companies in China. The expert committee is responsible for the policy review of the institute and the evaluation of research projects and teams. The advisory committee provides advice for the technology development and industrial development planning of the Institute.
1. Research Direction
The Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems focuses on future-oriented robotics and intelligent systems to carry out forward-looking research on basic theories and technologies; Industrial robot application research and technology integrated development oriented to industry and application promotion; Oriented to the development strategy of cultivating new talents, encouraging entrepreneurship and carrying out industry-university-research-application collaborative innovation, we will overcome the core key technologies of design methods, manufacturing processes, intelligent control and application system integration of robots and intelligent systems. For a new generation of collaborative industrial robots, the inspection robot, bionic robot, service robot and intelligent equipment of metallurgy industry theory and application research, actively promote domestic robot and intelligent system of large-scale application demonstration, the formation of independent intellectual property rights and technology standards, promote the development of the robot and intelligent system of hubei province industry innovation, Thus, the localization level of core equipment in the equipment manufacturing industry will be improved, the transformation and upgrading of the equipment manufacturing industry in the province will be promoted, the intelligent level of the process industry will be improved, and theoretical and technical support will be provided for the implementation of discipline development and scientific and technological services.
2. Development planning
The institute will combine the cutting edge and trend of intelligent robot theory and technology development, support and lead the discipline development as the guidance, mechanism innovation as the driving force, platform / team construction as the main line, and set up an international first-class robot and intelligent system innovation research institute. The institute plans to strive for 3~5 years and 6~8 years, cultivate and introduce about 5 leading talents (teams), launch 3~5 platforms with international advanced scientific research and innovation, and incubate 1~3 high-tech enterprises. At the same time, we will strive to build a robot and intelligent system research institute with certain status and influence in 5 to 10 years.
