Gree robot has won a number of patents. Has Dong Mingzhu's "intelligent dream" achieved results

diversified development was once one of the short 321 urban area environmental noise boards of home appliance giant Gree Electric appliance. In recent years, Gree Electric has also made many attempts in different fields

from the car making plan of Zhuhai Yinlong to Gree, which is popular with Dong Mingzhu, from the chip industry to smart home, and then to the medical and health industry, although Gree appliances has blossomed at many points, it seems that the main line that can really support Gree appliances is air conditioning products

however, recently, with the repeated exposure of the news that many patents of Gree robot have been authorized, the layout of Gree appliances in the field of high-end intelligent equipment and robots seems to be finally achieving results

tianyancha data shows that recently, Zhuhai Gree Intelligent Equipment Co., Ltd., which is wholly owned by Gree appliances, has added a number of patent information, and many patents are related to robots. Among them, a patent for the processing method and device of chess difficulty level and robot has been authorized on March 17, 2020. The patent abstract includes recording the chess playing process of the chess player in the human-computer game process of the Bureau; Calculate the chess player's chess playing level according to the recorded chess playing process; At the beginning of the next human-computer game, according to the calculated chess player's level of making it produce initial friction on the clamping surface, switch the chess difficulty level to the level matching the chess player's level of playing. The invention solves the technical problem that the adjustment of the difficulty level of robot playing chess is caused by the human judgment of the chess player's chess power

in addition, once the board is damaged, the company can only re purchase and apply for a patent for a method and device to prevent tampering of robot recorded data, involving blockchain technology. Using this method and device to achieve extremely high tamper proof security of robot application recorded data

in fact, this is not the first time that Gree has a robot patent. As early as March 16, Zhuhai Gree Electric Appliance Co., Ltd., the main operator of Gree Electric Appliance, announced the patented control method, device, storage medium and robot for robot piano playing, which was applied for on November 20, 2019. The patent application was published on March 6, 2020. According to the basic information, the patent can solve the problems of heavy workload, cumbersome steps and low accuracy of manual point-to-point teaching in the existing technology

as for the difficulty coefficient of Gree's two robot patents, Zhang Xin, a senior analyst at the Institute of robotics and engineering, told securities that from the perspective of patent content, both patents have expanded human-computer interaction and improved data processing capabilities. Among them, chess patents improve the information collection and processing capabilities of people or peripherals (external devices). The key of this patent lies in the frequency of visual acquisition, the ability of algorithm processing and the ability of executing logic. In terms of robots, robots are equivalent to tools for holding chess pieces. Although there is no significant technical improvement, it is necessary to ensure that the accuracy and speed of the robots used meet the requirements. In addition, the two patents have certain leadership in the application of domestic robots, and have high requirements for software and algorithm, which is the embodiment of soft power

according to public data, Gree officially entered the field of high-end equipment in 2013. In August 2015, Gree industrial robots officially achieved mass production. According to tianyancha data, Zhuhai Gree Intelligent Equipment Co., Ltd. was established in September 2015 with a registered capital of 100million. Its business scope includes intelligent robots, industrial automation equipment, machine tools 4, profitability reduction equipment of China's paper industry, industrial spare parts, etc. At the same time, it has three companies investing abroad, namely Gree intelligent equipment (Wuhan) Co., Ltd., Zhuhai Gree robot Co., Ltd. and Guangdong Guochuang Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd

however, although Gree Electric has entered the field of high-end equipment for 6 or 7 years, Gree's products are not common in the market. A senior robot industry practitioner told securities that generally speaking, at this time, there should be some achievements of Companies in the market, including the use of Gree robots in the market. However, in our industry, we rarely see Gree robots, unless we have seen his robots at the exhibition or at the customer site, which shows that Gree just made this product but did not sell it

it is worth mentioning that previously, Midea, a competitor with Gree, acquired Germany's KUKA group, which is one of the world's leading industrial robot manufacturers. However, unlike Midea, Gree Electric Appliance has chosen the path of independent research and development to enter the robot field, and the independent research and development of the whole industrial chain

the mode of independent research and development is doomed to be dormant for a long time in the early stage. From the data point of view, Gree's intelligent equipment business does not seem to be progressing smoothly, but it is undeniable that Gree's determination can be seen from the input and output of technology research and development. In the long run, Gree's model has great advantages and broad prospects. As for the progress of Gree Electric Appliance in the robot field, Lu Zhangyuan, director of the Institute of robotics of high engineering, told securities that due to the impact of the macro environment in the short term, market demand has tightened, and it still takes time for products to be introduced to the market for acceptance. The time cost and opportunity cost are high. At the same time, Gree's role also needs time to change. The leap from home appliances to intelligent equipment, and the business model from TOC to tob require different ideas and teams
