Intelligent wharf of China leads the world

Artificial intelligence (AI) has become the focus of development in the world. Walker, vice chairman of the U.S. National Security Council for artificial intelligence and former deputy secretary of defense, said in a public address recently that he is confident that the U.S. can beat China in this competition. But Zhu Lianyu, chairman of Shanghai Zhenhua heavy industry (Group) Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "Zhenhua heavy industry" or "Zhenhua"), said in an exclusive interview with the global times that in the field of terminal intelligence, China is at the forefront of the world.




Zhenhua heavy industry recently held "terminal intelligent solution exchange forum" in Dubai. On the platform of cooperation and exchange of the world's top smart terminals, Zhu Lianyu repeatedly mentioned the application of 5g technology in his speech. In an exclusive interview with reporters after the meeting, he said, "the intelligent terminal is the general trend and the future direction of global port development. At present, China's automated terminals are in the forefront. ".




It is understood that Zhenhua heavy industry has been the first in the world in the field of terminal container crane for 21 consecutive years, and the key of intelligent terminal is the overall intelligence of equipment and system. Twenty years ago, the company began to develop automatic terminal equipment, and later developed terminal equipment control system. In recent years, Zhenhua has successively participated in the construction of Xiamen hiseas, China's first automation terminal, Qingdao port, Asia's first automation terminal, and Shanghai Yangshan Port, the world's largest single and most comprehensive automation port, with more and more complex technology and higher automation level. These three wharves are the epitome of the development of China's automatic wharves, and also the proof that China's automatic wharves are at the forefront of the world.




COSCO's Abu Dhabi terminal is the first automated terminal in the Middle East. The reporter saw at the entrance and exit of the terminal that the intelligent identification system of container truck was adopted at the gate to identify the vehicle, container and driver one by one and interact with the port production operation system, so as to reduce the manual operation and greatly improve the operation efficiency. On the quayside bridge, the AI intelligent tally system can identify four 20 foot containers at the same time through video stream, which is the world's first technology and greatly improves the work efficiency. COSCO's head of shipping told reporters that the upgrading of terminal service capacity has enabled the Caliphate port in Abu Dhabi to leap from the 89th container port in the world to the top 25 and become an important competitive shipping hub in the Gulf region.




Zhu Lianyu repeatedly mentioned the application of 5g technology in the intelligent Wharf in his forum speech. According to Fei Guo, chief engineer of Zhenhua, Zhenhua has cooperation with Huawei, Ericsson and other suppliers. The application test of 5g technology in the intelligent terminal started a year ago. The emergence of 5g technology can further improve the remote and automation capabilities of the terminal, and further improve the efficiency of the port. For example, before the remote control of the tire crane, a crane needs a driver. After the remote control of wireless communication, a driver can take into account 3-4 devices remotely.




At present, China is the only country that applies 5g technology to intelligent terminals, which makes the construction of intelligent terminals in China take the lead in the industry. Long beach users of the United States attending the forum said that some wharves on the west coast of the United States are also gradually promoting automation upgrading, but for various reasons, the application of new technologies in intelligent wharves in the United States is relatively slow.




Referring to Zhenhua heavy industry's business in the United States, Zhu admitted that "Zhenhua heavy industry has been under some pressure under the Sino-U.S. trade dispute". Zhenhua heavy industry entered the US market in 1994 and now has the largest market share in the US. Li Ming, head of Zhenhua heavy industry's U.S. subsidiary, told reporters that in the economic and trade frictions between China and the U.S. since last year, Zhenhua heavy industry has suffered relatively limited impact. This is because Zhenhua heavy industry has the highest cost performance among the suppliers of similar products in the world; secondly, in the course of more than 20 years of cooperation, American users have a high degree of trust in Zhenhua heavy industry's products; thirdly, with the trend of large-scale ships, in recent years, the port equipment in the United States has started upgrading and transformation, and Zhenhua can meet the demand of the American market.




Zhu Lianyu said that in the future, the demand for large incremental demand for equipment in developed countries and regions is relatively limited, and the potential market is more related to the "one belt and one way" developing country, because "one belt and one road" will bring unprecedented opportunities for development to these countries and regions.




Cao Heping, a professor at the school of economics, Peking University, told reporters that China's intelligent code hair stand is at the forefront of the world. For example, No. 12 wharf of Shanghai Yangshan port is completely unmanned. This intelligent channel container can reduce the cost by 90%. Cao Heping believes that at this stage, China and the United States have their own strengths in the development of AI, and the United States is superior to China in the original technology of source code, that is, artificial intelligence. With a population of 1.4 billion, China is better than the United States in AI intelligent application and industrial chain. For the development of AI intelligent technology in the world, China and the United States should work together to achieve the greatest success. They are always ready to compete with their rivals. This is the sour grapes mentality.
