   ZTE and Nokia Strengthen Cooperation with Local Enterprises

 

   In February 2017, ZTE held the "Smart Grid & Middot; Smart City & mdash; & mdash; Listen to Your Voice" conference in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. More than 50 leaders of the Saudi Arabian Power Company and the State Grid attended the meeting and cooperated with the development and cooperation of the Saudi Smart Grid in the China Telecom Forum. ZTE introduced in detail the ZTE smart grid smart meter, backbone network, broadband network and intelligent street lighting solutions. ZTE will work closely with Saudi Power and the State Grid to help build a Saudi smart grid.

 

   In March, Nokia has signed a memorandum of understanding with Saudi telecom operator Zain KSA to jointly develop 5G technology and establish a clear direction for building the next-generation ultra-broadband network in Saudi Arabia. Nokia and Zain have already started cooperation to transform Jeda into a smart city. Through the signing of the new agreement, the two parties will further cooperate to make Saudi Arabia's smart, safe and sustainable urban construction reach a new level.

 

   Robots: Giving robots citizenship, the first in the world

 

   In October, at the Forum for Future Investment Initiative held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, a female robot named “Sofia” was granted Saudi Arabian citizenship, which was the first case in the world. To this end, Sofia thanked the Saudi government and considered it a great privilege for himself. Hanson Robotics, headquartered in Hong Kong, is a designer and manufacturer of Sofia. Sofia uses artificial intelligence and Google speech recognition technology, can simulate more than 62 kinds of facial expressions, has been previously known by the media as the "most humanoid robot."

 

   3D Printing: Hands-on Innovations Launches Large-Scale Construction Projects

 

   In March, China Yingchuang Construction Technology Co., Ltd. and Saudi Arabian Almobty Construction Group reached a cooperation. The two parties will jointly complete a 3D printing construction project of no less than 30 million square meters. The project will lease 100 units of Yingchuang 3D printing construction equipment. . At the same time, Yingchuang will establish a joint venture with Saudi Arabia to build 3D printing DreamWorks in the form of 3D printing architectural technology brands and technical resource usage fees.

 

   In May, researchers at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia developed a technology that uses 3D printing to produce fully integrated wireless sensors that can be used in extreme environmental conditions. The developer discussed the possibility of further improvement of these devices and thought that all electronic components could be integrated on a single chip.

 

   In October, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology of Saudi Arabia made further progress in scientific research and developed “Smart 3D Print Braces”. The R&D team designed the program to include a 3D-printed translucent dental mouthpiece, followed by tiny near-infrared LEDs and a small lithium-ion battery. Unlike existing braces, intelligent 3D printing braces are mobile, allowing the battery to be charged. Next, the research team hopes to perfect the prototype of the braces through clinical trials.

 

   Overall, in 2017, Saudi Arabia launched a number of large-scale projects in collaboration with foreign giants in the area of Internet of Things and 3D printing. The granting of robots as a citizenship initiative has international significance and is of great significance. Next, we will return to the southern hemisphere to see how New Zealand’s smart manufacturing industry has performed this year.
