The 21st CHITEC, or China Bei­jing In­ter­na­tional High­Tech Expo, is cur­rently draw­ing big crowds in show­cas­ing the ma­jor ben­e­fits flow­ing from the cap­i­tal’s state-of-theart tech­nol­ogy sec­tor.

Or­ga­niz­ers said the show is also demon­strat­ing the key roles be­ing played by young peo­ple in shap­ing Bei­jing’s tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion. The aim of the event, which started on Thurs­day and ends Sun­day, is to pro­mote the com­mer­cial­iza­tion, mar­ket-ori­ented op­er­a­tions and in­ter­na­tion­al­iza­tion of the tech­nol­ogy in­dus­try.

Among the ar­eas of en­deavor tak­ing cen­ter stage are the home au­to­ma­tion, in­dus­trial in­ter­net, new-en­ergy smart au­to­mo­biles, health­care and new ma­te­ri­als.

The new-en­ergy smart au­to­mo­bile stands dis­play progress in the key tech­nolo­gies re­lated to au­ton­o­mous driv­ing. Vis­i­tors can learn about the in­tel­li­gent driv­ing sim­u­la­tion test sys­tems de­vel­oped by Bei­jing-based HiRain Tech­nolo­gies Co, as well as the low-speed au­ton­o­mous driv­ing ve­hi­cle brought out by Idriver­plus, founded in 2015.

Else­where at the event, Bei­jing’s Cap­i­tal Youth Tech­nol­ogy In­no­va­tion Exhibition in­vites younger peo­ple to learn about com­mer­cial­iz­ing their achieve­ments.

This exhibition dis­plays projects, in­clud­ing those by prizewin­ners from an in­no­va­tion and en­trepreneur­ship com­pe­ti­tion in Bei­jing, as well as the fruits of ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties of col­lege stu­dents in the city.

Among them is a new gen­er­a­tion en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly ti­ta­nium bat­tery, which boasts a clean and pol­lu­tion-free chain from pro­duc­tion to use, de­vel­oped by a Bei­jing-based tech­nol­ogy com­pany. The com­pany has won im­por­tant awards at sev­eral young peo­ple-fo­cused in­no­va­tion and en­trepreneur­ship com­pe­ti­tions.

Ts­inghua Uni­ver­sity is ex­hibit­ing a me­chan­i­cal arm at this year’s expo, which won first prize at an ex­tracur­ric­u­lar sci­en­tific and tech­no­log­i­cal com­pe­ti­tion hosted by the uni­ver­sity re­cently. The arm can al­ter its shape, en­abling it to avoid ob­sta­cles, mak­ing it highly adapt­able, in­sid­ers said.

Vis­i­tors have the op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore the com­pany’s tech­nol­ogy in new en­ergy cars, its rep­re­sen­ta­tives said. They added that the car man­u­fac­turer aims to be­come a world-class newen­ergy auto sci­en­tific and tech in­no­va­tion leader.

The Bei­jing Eco­nomic-Tech­no­log­i­cal De­vel­op­ment Area, a key re­gion in the cap­i­tal’s am­bi­tions to be­come a na­tional sci­en­tific and tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion hub, also joined this year’s expo.

Its exhibition dis­play con­sists of six parts — new­gen­er­a­tion in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, in­tel­li­gent man­u­fac­tur­ing and ro­bots, bi­o­log­i­cal medicine and health­care, ad­vanced au­tos and newen­ergy au­tos, new ma­te­ri­als, and sci­en­tific and tech­no­log­i­cal cul­tural in­te­gra­tion.
