CHENGDU, China, Jan. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the latest statistics from Tianfu Software Park, as of December 30th, 2016, 22 intelligent hardware start-up projects were underway in the Park, covering a variety of fields, including virtual reality (VR), smart home, sports, medicine and consumption upgrade. Aside from those engaged in traditional competitive industries, such as software and game, intelligent hardware start-ups in Chengdu are also on the rise.
A company that owns patents for core technologies associated with VR optics and algorithms
VR is one of the most sought-after fields this year. Plenty of firms are bound up in VR games and videos in Chengdu, but world-class companies which specialize in VR intelligent hardware and own patents for core algorithms are rather scarce - IDEALSEE Group is one of them.
When you walk in the door of IDEALSEE Group's office in Zone C, Tianfu Software Park, the first thing you will see is a wall of patent certificates. And that's just a tip of the iceberg. IDEALSEE Group and Huawei are the only two Chinese companies which have an adequate amount of relevant patents to be listed in the Analysis Report of Patented Technologies for VR/AR published at The Beacon Forum in October, 2016 in Toronto, Canada.
A company that operates over 300 outlets equipped with private theater systems across the country
Many people only know that Chengdu XGIMI Technology Co., Ltd. has achieved great success in the home projector market. In fact, the company has dabbled in the private theater market and it has launched an independent brand called Lemon M'Coffee since November, 2014. Lemon M'Coffee has now entered 23 provinces, cities and autonomous regions in China. It runs over 300 outlets across the country, with 47 in Sichuan alone.
A company that provides smart routers compatible with all smart home devices
Founded in 2009, Chengdu DTING Technology CO., Ltd. focuses on the research and development of private clouds and its newifi series of smart routers. So far, in order to satisfy the needs of different kinds of customers, it has developed four types of smart routers.
It has now completed the third round of financing, receiving funds from well-known Internet companies like JD.com, Lenovo and Xunlei. In addition, it has been listed on the New Third Board since February, 2016.
A start-up company that exports design solutions and technologies to Germany
To many people's surprise, the industrial design as well as the research and development of several patented technologies for a type of smart lock launched by GL&G, a German enterprise, are done by VICTLINK Technology, a small start-up based in Chengdu. Incorporating new technologies such as face recognition, voice recognition, unlocking with phone, cloud certification, and remote authorization as well as functions including water proofing and impact resistance, the smart lock is said to be easy-to-use and secure. More importantly, the smart lock can be used on the majority of doors available in the market, as VICTLINK Technology has managed to push the limit of suitability.
Chengdu YEPE Technology
A company that strives to create a smart platform for ski enthusiasts all over the world.
YEPE started to build a smart platform for ski enthusiasts around the world in 2015. The platform is enabled by smart boxes and an app. The smart boxes can be installed on ski boards to record user data and reconstruct the motion trails and postures of skiers in 3D. The app, on the other hand, allows users to share their data and network with people who share the same passion for skiing. On November 16th, YEPE successfully raised millions of RMB of seed capital to put its products into mass production and improve its app and team performance.
The above mentioned five companies are just some representatives of intelligent hardware start-up projects in Tianfu Software Park. As Chengdu has been doing particularly well in terms of policy making, talent attraction and technology research and development in recent years, the business environment for intelligent hardware start-ups has improved a lot. Software technologies are essential to the research and development of intelligent hardware. As the home to many famous colleges and universities, Chengdu still enjoys great advantages with respect to technological resources.
