RELEASE: Cutting-edge technologies make FISU Chengdu Games smart and green

CHENGDU, China, Aug. 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The 31st Summer World University Games, which concluded in Chengdu on Aug. 8, impressed athletes and officials from around the world with the cutting-edge technologies used throughout the event.

Advanced products using technologies such as 5G, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and "photovoltaic glass" were employed to make the event smart and green.

Turkish goalkeeper Samet Ak was captivated by robots at FISU Games Village. In the restaurant, a robot cooks Chinese food for international guests. Nearby, another robot prepares drinks based on customers' preferences and serves them with precision. Ak said that the innovations make his daily routine a pleasant experience.

The FISU Chengdu Games have introduced a variety of robots to help with athletic training and daily life. These include a table tennis training robot, a coffee brewing robot, and a panda-shaped robot designed in line with "Rongbao," the event's mascot.

The autonomous driving experience station was a popular attraction with athletes.

Autonomous NEVs provided by Mogo AI, a Chinese autonomous driving start-up, offered a high-tech travel experience for athletes. Based on sophisticated sensors, the vehicles have a perception range of 200 meters with no blind spots.

Jimmy Ye, chairman of the Singapore Universities Sports Council, said he was particularly impressed by the wide application of green technology.

More than 1,300 new energy buses and more than 1,000 new energy cars were deployed during the FISU Games, including hydrogen-powered buses made in Chengdu.

As for the venues, new technologies, new energies and innovative materials were used to achieve low carbon emissions, increase energy efficiency and protect the environment.

The Xindu Xiangcheng Sports Center, home to water polo competitions, is a prime example with its rainwater recycling system. The system retains rainwater and treats it so that it can be used to re-green and maintain the stadium. This reduces water consumption by 20 percent, saving more than 3,000 metric tons of water per year.

The basketball venue at Fenghuangshan Sports Park has a state-of-the-art operating system. It can detect the number of people inside the venue in real time, and based on that, it can adjust the air conditioning. The system reduces energy consumption by up to 15 percent.

During the event, more than 170 high-tech products were used in more than 30 venues, according to statistics released by the Chengdu Science and Technology Bureau at a press conference.
