Sensors - The foundation and support of a new generation of information technology
The small sensor has become the foundation and support of the new generation of information technology, and has become one of the focuses of the 2019 China International Intelligent Industry Expo (Zhibo Fair). On August 24th, many sensor practitioners gathered at the "2019 China International Intelligent Industry Expo Sensor and Internet of Things Summit Forum" to discuss the development of China's sensor industry.
Developing industry proposals "both hands"
The industry is moving toward intelligence, and everything is moving toward interconnection. Behind all this is the sensor that completes the collection and transmission of information.
"Don't say it in 20 years. 'At that time, we didn't grasp the basics at that time." In the view of Yang Xueshan, former deputy minister of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and honorary chairman of the China Sensors and Internet of Things Industry Alliance, the sensor is small, but the importance is not However, speeding up the development of China's sensor industry is the key to achieving intelligence.
The current problem in China is precisely that the sensor industry is still far behind the world's advanced level. Yang Xueshan said that there are currently about 35,000 sensors in the world, but the localization category is gone. Except for China's late start, it is more because the sensor category is more in line with different scientific principles and specifications. Specific products need to be closely integrated with the application; in the case of small batches and advanced companies to achieve high quality and low price, it is difficult to invest in the sensor industry to produce good benefits.
How to really promote the industrialization of China's sensors? Yang Xueshan put forward the concept of “use-centered ecological chain”. He suggested “two-handedly grasping”: for areas that have national and people's livelihood, national security and international competition, but the market is not large enough and capable of domestic production, The government should extend its support and truly resolve to achieve localization. On the other end, it is recommended to focus on value and scenarios to condense technology and industry in areas that can rely on market forces to achieve mass production.
"Like the development of chip technology, we must do a good job in the research and development, preparation and application of advanced sensing technology." Shen Liping, former deputy chief designer of China's manned space engineering and academician of the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA). For the market-oriented field, Guo Yuansheng, vice chairman of the China Sensors and Internet of Things Industry Alliance, stressed that at least six sensors in the fields of sound, gas sensitivity and magnetic sensitivity can be industrialized. “AAC Technologies and Goer shares have driven the entire acoustic sensing sector.”
It should be mentioned that, in order to promote the industrialization of sensors, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology officially approved the National Intelligent Sensor Innovation Center in July 2018. The Innovation Center is dedicated to research and development platforms for key technologies and device structures of sensors, achieving R&D supply, diversification and diffusion for the first time. commercialize.
Starting from the application to help intelligently manufacture sensors may not be expensive, but without it, industrial IoT and intelligent manufacturing will not be able to talk about it. In terms of sensor industrialization, Guo Yuansheng called for a “double ecological” system to promote cluster development. He suggested to create a sensor industry park with good natural environment, superior industrial environment, international influence and popularity in the field of location and talent advantage, forming a characteristic industrial base that gathers more than 100 companies and research institutes.
Many industry insiders believe that those places with a dominant manufacturing base can develop the sensor industry and drive the transformation and upgrading of local manufacturing to smart manufacturing. Chongqing is just such a “manufacturing capital”. According to the data, Chongqing has the automobile and motorcycle industry represented by Changan Automobile and Lifan, as well as the advantageous manufacturing enterprises such as Sichuan Instrument.
“Chongqing Beibei District will accelerate the implementation of the special action plan for the development of the sensor industry, and create an industrial cluster focusing on sensors and Internet of Things.” At the forum, relevant officials of the Beibei District Government said. The forum also held the opening ceremony of the sensor industry base in Chongqing and the signing ceremony of the strategic cooperation of sensor companies.
According to the reporter's review, in May 2017, Chongqing Municipality has issued the “Special Action Plan for Accelerating the Development of Sensor Industry in Chongqing (2017-2020)”, focusing on strengthening the research and development of new sensors and improving the application of sensing technology in intelligent manufacturing systems. Construct the entire industry chain of “core screen nuclear network” (chip, panel, intelligent terminal, new energy and intelligent networked car, Internet of Things).
In order to speed up the industrialization of sensors, Wu Peng, chairman of Sichuan Instrument Co., Ltd., suggested in an interview that it should develop applications, especially industrial applications. Wu Peng introduced that as a leading sensor company in China, Chuanyi has reached the industry leading level in pressure, temperature, flow and gas sensor manufacturing, but in the upper MEMS, chip, software and other fields, and the world advanced The larger gap, he called on the government to plan and support in these areas.
Talking about the policy, Yang Jing, deputy director of the Sensor Center of Chongqing Acoustics and Optoelectronics Co., Ltd., suggested that the country should support the sensor industry from three levels: first, to support high-end new materials and new technologies, and secondly to support common technology platforms. The third is to provide relevant support for the use of domestic sensors from the perspective of the application scenario.
