Fourier Intelligence introduced its GR-1 humanoid robot at the World Artificial Intelligence Conference in Shanghai. While AI software has been the focus in the tech community, the Chinese-made GR-1 serves as a reminder of the potential of bipedal robots. This type of robot is being pursued by companies like Tesla and Xiaomi.

The GR-1 was developed in a laboratory at Fourier headquarters. After three years of refining and testing, engineers achieved a major breakthrough in 2022. They successfully made the 1.65-meter tall robot rise up on both legs and walk.

The GR-1 robot has already been delivered to some universities and AI companies for research and development. Fourier Intelligence plans to begin mass production by the end of the year and aims to deliver thousands of units in 2024.
