“Depth Sensing” is a process in which intelligent machines collect complete and reliable environmental information and obtain accurate understanding. It is closely related to sensing technology, semiconductor technology, Internet of Things, big data and artificial intelligence, etc. At present, the typical applications include smart cars and intelligent robots, etc. Now the development level of the perceived industry is far from meeting the needs of artificial intelligence and intelligent industrial revolution. In the face of the emerging RMB trillion market, JITRI engaged Dr. Yue Yutao, former senior scientist of Shenzhen Guangqi Group, to prepare for the construction of the Depth Sensing Technology Institute under the project manager system at the beginning of the year After nearly one year’s hard work, the Depth Sensing Technology Institute has settled in Wuxi High-tech Zone. This is the 19th specialty institute of JITRI built under the new mechanism of “multi-party construction, diversified investments, mixed ownership and focus on team”, and also the first specialty research institute jointly established by JITRI and Wuxi City according to the new mechanism.
