Both categories of the X-Creator Challenge require groundbreaking ideas for the design of devices to support emergency and disaster relief / rescue operations after earthquakes, landslides, mudslides and production accidents, especially with the help of intelligent technologies to save lives in urgent situations. Proposed changes under The two categories are also invited to submit their entries for the award ceremony.
“In 2020 alone, around 138 million people were affected by natural disasters China Therefore, it is of the utmost importance to quickly find solutions to bottleneck problems in disaster relief and rescue. New technologies such as 5G, modularized multifunctional emergency rescue devices, quick dismantling / assembly of devices and remote control are undoubtedly the key to further development, “he said Xiaodong Xu, Deputy GM of XCMG Fire Protection Equipment.
Participants from around the world can now upload their designs online through June. In addition to financial awards and grants, first prize winners will have the opportunity to conduct their project with universities or companies. Excellent preliminaries may receive an interview invitation from XCMG, and exceptional winners may even receive offers to join the XCMG team.
X-Creator has set a financing pool for the industrial transformation totaling 10 million yuan ($ 1.55 million). In addition to the complete solution and equipment design, excellent feedback on product and function optimization from international participants for awards is also considered.
Launched in 2016, the XCMG Cup competition is part of XCMG’s 14 precisely positioned global welfare projects and a major breakthrough in the traditional R&D model of promoting technological innovation and nurturing young talent to drive the sustainable development of the industry.
Several concepts and innovative ideas from previous competitions were used in product design and development, including the compact, low-noise and highly efficient fan project from the first XCMG Cup, the multifunctional, green-powered mini excavator design in the second year, among others.
