Core Social Welfare Project
Intelligent Guide Dog​

Since its inception, the Azure team has met a father from Shanghai whose daughter, who is still in elementary school, has just become permanently blind due to a medical accident. We were deeply moved when this father told us about his daughter's life after losing her sight. What makes this father most distressed is not only that his daughter frequently falls and gets injured, but also that she gradually loses confidence and hope in her future life. In that moment, we were moved by the grief this family endured.

Inspired by this, the Weilan team seriously explored the possibility and potential of quadruped robots as guide equipment for the blind. After in-depth research, we were pleasantly surprised to find that quadruped robots are extremely safe, stable and practical, and can be designed to be very cute, friendly and easy to touch. More importantly, guide dogs can bring a sense of loyalty, safety and companionship to the visually impaired that cannot be replaced by other forms!

The father told us: It doesn't matter even if the real smart guide dog function is not yet available, as long as we are willing to work on the smart guide dog project and one day be able to realize it, he can tell his daughter. Because when he saw the guide dog concept display on Weilan’s official website, he told his daughter that there would be such a cute and loyal intelligent guide dog in the future. This adorable guide dog will be by her side, guarding her and acting as her eyes. At that moment, his daughter's hope in life was rekindled.

Since then, the Weilan team has firmly regarded the development of intelligent guide dog technology as its core social welfare mission. Over the years, we have been committed to the research and development of technology in this field. Today, we have initially achieved indoor fully autonomous driving FSD 1.0. Although there is still work to be done before it can be applied to guide scenes, hope is already showing! We solemnly promise: when the Weilan team successfully develops an intelligent guide dog, we will open up all relevant patents, technologies and supply chain resources, and provide the best intelligent guide products at cost prices to all groups who need a bright guide!

We will bring together global innovative resources to provide the best protection, companionship and interactive experience for the visually impaired. Here, we sincerely invite blind guide technology-related fields such as computer vision, autonomous driving, motion control, multi-modal human-computer interaction, as well as agents, deep learning, multi-modal large models, etc. that can help artificial intelligence better understand the environment and Excellent R&D talents in user-related technical fields join the Weilan team. Let us work together to promote beautiful artificial intelligence innovation and bring the light of intelligence to our world as soon as possible!

Weilan is committed to promoting the innovation of general productivity technology, aiming to achieve a comprehensive upgrade of human intelligence and physical labor capabilities. General Productivity Technology is at the core of this vision, with the goal of creating advanced technological solutions with human-like intelligence and physical capabilities. In this field, artificial intelligence and robots represent the modern realization of our mental and physical working abilities respectively. ( Grand secret plan )

Quadruped robots serve as key carriers and provide a wide range of application scenarios for general productivity technologies. Quadruped robots can quickly adapt to various environments and quickly enter homes, businesses and different industries, thereby accelerating the technological innovation process brought about by large-scale industrialization. The universal humanoid robot has become the core carrier of this revolutionary technology. Its uniqueness is that it is completely adapted to our daily life and working environment, and like a true "second self", it uses various tools and equipment specially designed and manufactured for humans to easily assist in completing various labor tasks.

The Weilan team originated from the founder's nearly 30-year dream of improving human productivity through universal productivity technology. The founder of Weilan learned programming at the age of 8 and artificial intelligence at the age of 13. At the age of 16, he won the first place in the Nanjing Computer Programming Competition (human-machine conversational agent based on natural language understanding and speech synthesis). At the age of 23, he won the international championship (RoboCup humanoid robot). Double champion in the domestic robot group and the domestic robot group). At the same time, the founder of Weilan is also the only Chinese to win the championship in the humanoid robot category of the World Robot Championship for three consecutive years. The founder of Weilan Team has been engaged in scientific research in NimbRo Group and Computer Vision Group

, the world's top artificial intelligence robot and autonomous driving research teams , and studied in the same school as Sebastian Thrun, the father of autonomous driving. The Weilan team has always been committed to continuously researching and improving the related technical systems of general humanoid robots. In this journey full of challenges and opportunities, we sincerely invite you to join hands to jointly promote innovation and development in this field.
sounds fantastic, a robot dog that contains everything we have ever wanted. If everything actually works without errors and is affordable, I can well imagine that it will be of use to many people in everyday life. Unfortunately, so far no English or focus on Europe... if you are lucky enough to buy this dog, I'm looking forward to the reports, videos... it remains exciting. Keep your fingers crossed😊👍💝
