Pub Date:2020-09-17 08:33 Source:chinadaily.com.cn

With its overall automation rate hitting 97.5 percent, the advanced production plant of China's electric vehicle maker Nio in Hefei – capital of East China's Anhui province – is said to rank among the world's leading vehicle manufacturing facilities.

According to Yang Yi, assistant to Nio's general manager, the factory is producing China's first light-weight aluminum body with a weight of merely 335 kilograms per unit.

At present, 20 vehicles an hour are completed and in July this year, Nio celebrated the 50,000th vehicle to have come off the production line at the Hefei plant. The plant is a joint venture with JAC Motors, a State-owned automobile manufacturer in China, established in 2016, Yang said.

He said that with regards to Hefei's high-tech achievements, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

In China Speech Valley in Hefei National High-tech Industry Development Zone, major breakthroughs in cutting-edge technologies – including new-generation artificial intelligence, intelligent speech, intelligent customer service and wearable equipment – are being made.

iFlytek, a top tech firm in China Speech Valley, for example, has been exploring AI technology in multiple areas – including translations, politics and the law, city management, life, healthcare and education.

The company's educational products now range from teaching to learning and are now utilized in more than 35,000 schools all over China, serving over 100 million teachers and students. The system can help teachers improve the learning of their students and provide corresponding help.

In the field of medical care, iFlytek has developed a system that passed the national qualification exams for medical practitioners and this system is currently providing diagnostic assistance to many community hospitals that have less medical resources, a company spokesman said.
