But at the same time, due to the rising career and busy daily work, it is a regret for many parents that they cannot accompany their children.But with child escortrobotThe birth of this thorny problem may be solved. Let’s find out together!
▎The “two-child policy” liberalization of newborns drives an explosion of demand
According to the results of China’s sixth census in 2010, there were more than 220 million children aged 0-14 in my country. After the liberalization of the two-child policy, the number of babies born each year will reach more than 20 million.
However, most of the parents of these 220 million children are the post-80s and post-90s who are the main force in the workplace. Due to their busy work, most parents do not have enough time to accompany their children. However, the popular child escort robot may alleviate this situation.
Industry insiders believe that with the help of the internet, child escort Robots will effectively break the boundaries of space, create a more technologically accompany experience, and even detect the timely movements of children to meet the needs of users. In addition, with the gradual improvement of its functions, user demand will also explode, and the development prospects will be very broad.
▎Robots will become more and more “anthropomorphic”, and the escort type will attract the most attention
ZDC Internet research data shows that in the distribution of robot product user attention, the attention of escort robots reaches 32.2%, which is much higher than that of robot products.industry22.6% of robots, 18.8% of service robots and 17.2% of special robots. Many robot companies have followed the trend and launched various types of child companion robots, and added additional functions according to user needs.
At the same time, with the high coupling of artificial intelligence technology and security technologies such as face recognition and video interaction with the main application scenarios of home robots, robots have become more “anthropomorphic” and can bring users a deeper experience.
In addition to the usual simple voice dialogue and learning functions, the child care robot launched by Jiaqi has also specially designed a mobile APP for parents, so that parents can remotely interact with their children by sending voice and games. 360 has launched the 360 Children’s Robot, which has a built-in billions of children’s question-and-answer knowledge base and can be used as a “teacher” for children. It is also equipped with an independent AI voice engine. The machine can realize more intelligent voice interaction with children, and parents can follow their children in real time through the robot. dynamic.
▎The market will reach 11.1 billion US dollars in five years, and the education type is optimistic
In the minds of many parents, a simple companion robot is no different from a toy, and has no purchase value. Therefore, a companion robot with substantial educational functions will be more favored by consumers.
The “2016 White Paper on the Development of Global Educational Robots” released by the Institute of Smart Learning of Beijing Normal University predicts that the global market for educational robots will reach US$11.1 billion in the next five years, and the service and content revenue of educational service robots will likely occupy the entire market. 77% or more.
However, the current so-called educational robots in China cannot actually be called “people”, because most of them are based on tablet computers, and can only be defined as “machines” at most. Therefore, educational child care robots will become the next trend, and the market needs to be further explored.
