HIT Robot Group, one of China's top manufacturers of robots, launched an industrial robotics tutorial application, "Haidu Academy", aiding learners of different levels to better their industrial robot-operating skills on a variety of brands.
China is the world’s largest and fastest-developing robot market. According to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, in the first seven months of 2017, 71,600 industrial robots were built in China, making up for over 30% of global output in that period. Statistics also reveal a growing demand for skilled workers. The Ministry predicts that China will require 200,000 skilled workers to operate industrial robots as of 2020.
We offer an educational platform for people to find value and improve their skills. We also want to create a place where our industrial robot peers will be able to promote their brands and products.
