As for companies that are focused on industrial robots for logistics and those that are engaged in production of artificial diamonds, they have active contacts with their Chinese partners, produce artificial diamonds for them and develop certain elements of technologies.”
The tour around the laboratories continued. The Chinese partners were shown some pieces of robotic devices. One of them was a real wonder of artificial intelligence that engineers had been working on for about 5 years. The warehouse robot. It is intended for transportation of cargoes.
