BEIJING, October 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — A report from People’s Daily: During the athletics events of the Hangzhou Asian Games, people’s attention was drawn to several “robot dogs” manipulating discs and javelins back and forth. After completing their equipment-carrying tasks, these four-legged machines obediently waited on the sidelines for their next orders.
These “robot dogs” are also called quadruped robots. Shen Hongbina Chinese technology manager of the competition department of the Hangzhou Asian Games organizing committee said using “robot dogs” to transport sports equipment like discs and javelins could greatly save manpower and ensure security.
Intelligence was one of the key concepts of the Hangzhou Asian Games, and the “robot dogs” used in the athletics events exactly embodied the vision of a Smart Asian Games.
At the Hangzhou Asian Games Village, passengers queued early at an augmented reality (AR) bus demonstration area. The buses used visual perception, laser radar perception and other technologies to operate, without the intervention of security personnel. These buses could predict pedestrian and vehicle movements, automatically planning and executing avoidance programs.

From the launch of a digital torchbearer to the introduction of electronic identity registration and the exploration of 5.5G technology, the use of digital technologies and technical innovations at the Hangzhou Asian Games has contributed to breaking the boundaries of time and space, allowing more people to participate in sports. events virtually and fully enjoy the excitement of sports.
