Korea Institute of Robot and Convergence (KIRO) is a government-affiliated institute of manufacturing robots, will take a leap and grow as the leading one to cultivate domestic robot industry to create and develop technology for robot technology innovation by providing and distributing it to industrial areas.
I, Park Cheol-hyu,
the president of KIRO, am greatly appreciated to introduce KIRO.
The robot industry is a representative convergent one with a great wave effect on front·rare one - a future essential new growth engine projected to an economic growth size of 10 trillion won in the domestic market, 100 billion dollars in the world market within 10 years with '1 person 1 robot'.
Along with South Korea’s robot industry, KIRO has been developed including commercialization of more than 30 kinds of robot products, national business such as heavy construction robots and national safety robots for 10 years since established.
However, we has to strive to move forward the flow of the world market considering global competitions such as recent Google’s or Amazon’s robot industry advancement, Chinese market’s rapid growth, or robot service launching in nursing field in Japan.
Therefore, KIRO will secure the on-site-focused commercialization and source technology at the world level in the professional service robot fields including marine and medical industry, culture, steel, military, and safety to contribute realization of strong robot industry and counteract, adapt international competition as a global practical research institution.
I look forward to your continuous care and expectation.
Thank your for reading.
The president of KIRO, Park Cheol-hyu
