Robotics companies in China have mostly focussed on developing home robots such as Rokid, Pudding and Alpha2 in the past year. With the further development of artificial intelligence, robotics company from various verticals have listed in China in the recent years, including TINAVI Medical Technologies Co., Ltd and Deep Ocean Technology Co. Ltd. Robotics professionals from different verticals have discussed what makes a strong team for developing vertical robotics at TechCrunch Beijing.

Founder and CEO of Deep Ocean Technology Co, Ltd, Jiancang Wei says the robot industry needs three kinds of people to boost cooperation between different industries. The first person needs to have a technology background and capacity to adapt its skills to different industries; the second person needs technology background in one specific vertical and actual development skills; the third person needs to have management skills that can inspire the teammates to develop the vertical robotics. With these three members in a team, the team can perform better and have efficiency to develop a product, he explains.

At the same time he also stressed that the core technology should be owned by the company, and should not cooperate with other company on it. “The team must solve the problem by themselves,” Mr. Wei says.
