It’s smart and has an amazing emergency response speed that is seven times higher than humans. It’s able to work through windy and rainy conditions. It can last for over 100 kilometers with 4 kWh and deliver over 500 parcels per day. Soon, citizens will see the “Xiaomanlv” in the local communities, schools, offices, and parks.

“Wuying”, also known as “Cloud Computer”, is a supercomputer on the cloud. It does not have a local host, a CPU, or a hard disk. All of the hardware devices are centrally located in the cloud data center. With a business-card-like C-Key, users are entitled to infinite computing power.
