Panda Robot, developed by UBTECH, a global leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and humanoid robotics, made its debut at the 2021 World Robot Conference in Beijing, opening the way for its entrance at the China Pavilion in Expo 2020 Dubai, which begins next month.

The 1.3-meter-tall, 63-kilogram robot with the adorable black and white expressive face, paired with its entertaining and engaging behavior was designed specifically for the China Pavilion and will be a great draw for robot lovers and customers all over the world.

The UBTECH Panda Robot was inspired by the iconic panda native to China, combining unique technologies based on Walker, a humanoid service robot. The robot seeks to convey to the world the UBTECH Robotics spirit of creativity, collaboration, and determination through its expressive and life-like expression and multi-modal design.

UBTECH Chief Brand Officer (CBO) Mr. Tan Min said, “UBTECH is committed to bringing intelligent robots to thousands of households. As the only Official Partner of AI Robotics for the China Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai UAE, our Panda Robot which we’ve based on the UBTECH Humanoid Service Robot Walker is a true example of China’s latest achievements in smart manufacturing and technical innovation.”

The official start date for Expo 2020 Dubai is October 1, 2021. As the Global Ambassador for Peace and Friendship, the UBTECH Panda Robot will serve as a guide around the China Pavilion. The China Pavilion will showcase smart agriculture, environmentally responsible products, and solutions that line with the country’s long-standing commitment to “green” growth.


Meanwhile, the exhibition will feature calligraphy, Tai Chi demonstrations, and other traditional Chinese arts and practices, as well as China’s breakthroughs in artificial intelligence (AI), showcasing how Chinese traditional culture is blended with the contemporary information era.

Even during the pandemic, UBTECH was able to bring to market cost-effective, technology-driven anti-epidemic robots and solutions that have been used in China, the US, Japan, the Netherlands, and even Rwanda to help control COVID-19 spread and provide solutions for the return to pre-pandemic conditions.
