Hardware manufacturers and software systems pursue a high degree of versatility and standardization. It is difficult for a hardware company to produce all the hardware required for a certain practical scenario. Similarly, a software system cannot build all the software. However, in the field of intelligence, what Lucheng Technology does is different from traditional integrators, because compared to information technology, intelligence requires higher technology and requires companies to carry out technology and product development for specific scenarios. And Lucheng Technology is in the subdivision of AI navigation, providing standardized and modular software application layers, andAdapt to different hardware products and software systems.

In order to better adapt, Lucheng Technology spent two years to solve the problems of system interfaces, differences in robot capabilities, and hardware components. At present, it can quickly adapt to robots from 7 or 8 manufacturers. After obtaining the investment from Cheetah Mobile this time, it will also help Lucheng Technology to build products into Cheetah’s robotics products, deepen the coupling at the technical level, and obtain better upstream prices and services in the role of ecological enterprises.
