2021 and 2022 are considered the period of post-pandemic rehabilitation for China. However, the Celestial Empire does not stop there and introduces more innovations both in the industrial sphere and in the ordinary life of the population, actively implementing the Made in China 2025 program. Below are the 10 largest new technologies in China in the past and present years.
High Tech for Home Decoration
New technologies such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality and 3D modeling are being used in the home decor market, which is expected to reach a valuation of 6 trillion yuan ($923 billion) a year in China by 2025. Tubatu has teamed up with software developers to offer cloud-based design and BIM services to consumers.
Artificial intelligence is used in decision making and supply chain optimization, virtual reality in design and education, and Building Information Modeling (BIM), a 3D model-based tool, is used by professionals in architecture, engineering and construction. In Chinese cities, especially in metropolitan areas such as Shanghai, Beijing and Shenzhen, houses make up about 70 percent of family assets. Thus, people are willing to pay more for the design and decoration of premises, which increases the demand for new technologies.
Vehicle Parking Easier App
Shanghai authorities are using more digital technology, including 5G, big data and artificial intelligence, to improve the city’s congestion and traffic situation. Parking is difficult due to the imbalance between cars and parking spaces. In order to solve this problem, the traffic department has implemented the Shanghai parking application, which so far covers 4,700 parking spaces, and provides services such as shopping mall parking space sharing at night.
hospital parking assignment, payment of fees after that, and parking at transport hubs such as airports and railway stations. The Shanghai Parking app helps you park at night at shopping malls, hospitals, and transportation hubs such as airports and train stations. Drivers can park at Xinhua Hospital by making an appointment through the Shanghai Parking app. Parking is also difficult in hospitals, but people can use the app to reserve parking in advance.
Diffuse Solar Greenhouse Roof
Chinese researchers have developed a new type of light-splitting greenhouse roof that can transmit visible light by converting near-infrared light into electricity. Visible light from 400 nanometers (nm) to 780 nm is critical to controlling the photosynthesis process of greenhouse plants, but near infrared light from 780 to 2500 nm has little effect on plant growth and can cause overheating inside the greenhouse.
The new solar roof can transmit visible light with an all-day transmittance of 40 percent and convert near-infrared light into electricity at the same time, allowing greenhouse plants to grow normally with less cooling energy consumption. Rooftop-generated electricity, with a daily photovoltaic efficiency of 6.88 percent, can also power a greenhouse daily.
Technology for health during the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics
Technologies for the prevention and control of coronavirus in the field of healthcare are one of the main priorities of the Winter Olympics, so advanced technologies aimed at reducing personal contact and improving the efficiency of testing are becoming one of the organizers’ top priorities. The armpit patch, which is about the size of a mobile phone SIM card, helps measure body temperature. Employees can simply touch the smart thermometer to their skin and the temperature data will be displayed on the app on their mobile phones.
Also for the first time, dried blood stain testing (DBS), a new method for collecting biological samples, will be used. It collects whole blood samples for storage and later analysis. With the advantage of using only small volumes of blood, convenience, reliability and greater sample stability, DBS testing will be a powerful weapon in the fight against doping. In the field of closed-loop control, an advanced robotic remote ultrasound diagnostic system will be used to treat patients, allowing non-contact doctor-patient diagnostics.
Autonomous vehicles during the pandemic
China is still experiencing outbreaks of WeRide has delivered vehicles equipped with its autonomous driving technology to help deliver essentials to lockdown Lebanese communities, transporting items from checkpoints set up on the outskirts of areas to housing estates. Local volunteers then distribute these items to households. Due to road conditions, autonomous vehicles may operate without a human (reserve driver) for safety. The company’s unmanned technology is classified as Level 4, which the American engineering standards group SAE International defines as the ability to drive a vehicle in restricted environments.
Fabric Waste Recycling
China is one of the largest exporters of textile and clothing products in the world with over 20,000 companies. The technology developed by Shanghai Donghua University has proven to be an effective way to recycle waste fabrics. By placing the used cotton fabric in a clear solvent, after just a few hours of mixing, it dissolves into what looks like a cup of water. This solution can then be reconstituted into cellulose, which can be made into bio-products such as medical bandages or protective clothing. The challenge is to make the business green and sustainable. However, it also opens up new opportunities for this sector. This attracts many environmentalists.
Best Practice for Handling Nuclear Assets
Treatment of nuclear waste is the final step in the safe use of nuclear energy, of which the most complex and technically advanced is the treatment of highly radioactive liquid. China’s first high-level radioactive liquid waste disposal facility capable of melting waste into glass has been officially put into operation in Guangyuan, southwest China’s Sichuan province. The difficulties and main opportunities of such a waste disposal mechanism lie in the consolidation formula with high inclusive speed and stability.
allowing for the safe containment of radioactive materials inside for more than 1000 years. It is expected that the annual volume of waste disposal will reach several hundred cubic meters, and the glass produced from the waste will be buried in storage hundreds of meters underground, providing complete isolation of radioactive materials from the biosphere and laying a solid foundation for the safe use of nuclear energy in the future. This approach to waste management is by far the most advanced method in the world. Previously, this technique was mastered only by the USA, France, Germany and some others.
