The VR network (WeChat public number: VR platform) editor recently learned that under the guidance of the Electronic Information Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the China Institute of Information and Communications released the "2017 Mobile Intelligent Terminal Summit and Intelligent Hardware Ecology Conference". Smart Hardware Industry White Paper (2017). The "Intelligent Hardware Industry White Paper (2017)" pointed out that computing, sensing, and networking have become the main core technologies of intelligent hardware. Due to the penetration of artificial intelligence, the intelligent development of computing technology requires systematic innovation, from the integration of heterogeneous chips to the deep interpretation of algorithms, to cloud platform training and end-to-end reasoning. Perception is also achieved by a variety of sensors and artificial intelligence algorithms to achieve sensor fusion and multimodality perception. Networking places more emphasis on the development of high-rate, low-power, and short-distance network technologies. Mobile phones, robots, virtual reality, drones, and smart homes are the top five products for smart hardware. Mobile phone image devices have become the main technical direction. Service robots used in medical and home use are growing rapidly. The basic capabilities of virtual reality are still improving. The market for consumer and professional drones has entered a scale of growth. Smart Home is Collapsed to cloud interactive + networking + control center mode. The VR network (WeChat public number: VR platform) abstracts some of the key contents of the white paper. The current VR/AR industry has the following characteristics and trends: As virtual reality emerges from the hype period, it will take time for basic capabilities to improve. The industry has initially formed two leading groups, and industrial de facto standards are brewing. At this stage, the strategic focus of Google and Samsung is still on smart phones, and the promotion of the mobile VR industry is not firm. Host VR companies are more willing to promote ecological development. The core technology is still immature, and rendering and interactive technologies are the next key breakthroughs. Near-eye display technology is relatively complete. There are still major bottlenecks in dealing with rendering and interactive technologies. On the one hand, GPU hardware needs to continue to be upgraded, and new process technology, GPU architecture, and components further improve GPU computing performance. On the other hand, image engines and rendering algorithms need to be optimized for virtual reality. Interactive technology gradually evolved from visual to tactile, auditory, and action-based multi-channel interactions. From the perspective of applications, it is difficult for VR devices to become general-purpose devices in the short-term, and the lack of application scenarios and types or restrictions on product volume over a longer period of time. In the short to medium term, the role of VR devices in the personal market will be dominated by game audio and video peripherals. The gradual diffusion of device experience and application to the industrial application market is the realistic path to realizing. Augmented reality or prior to virtual reality becomes a scale application technology that changes the smart phone application service model. First, the technical threshold for AR to achieve a better user experience is lower than VR. Second, AR application scenarios are more plentiful than VR.

In 2017, along with the common development of artificial intelligence and proprietary device technologies, practitioners are applying their strengths in mass consumption and industrial application markets to polish products and services targeting segmented markets and specific scenarios, and the commercialization of intelligent hardware. More broadly, smart phones, smart robots, virtual reality, drones, and smart homes are all welcoming opportunities for functional upgrades and market expansion. Smart application services are also entering the industry from mass consumption.
