Due to the lack of strong support from the national system and mechanism in this industry, the instrument industry in China lacks high-level compound talents, and comprehensive talents who are familiar with and proficient in the intersection of various disciplines. Independent innovation ability is low, and independent intellectual property rights are scarce. Specifically, the domestic high-end automation products are scarce, and the market competitiveness is not strong.
Modern metrology is a highly integrated product of optics, mechanics, electricity, computer and many basic disciplines. It is sensitive to new technology. It is one of the products with fast updating speed in modern industrial products. Every year, new products will be introduced. Especially in the era of rapid development of information technology, the competition is becoming increasingly fierce, and the slightly slower development speed will be far behind. Although China has entered the 21st century, many things still remain at the level of the early 1980s. Large and high-end instruments and equipment almost rely on imports. Even some special instruments are still in a blank state in China. There are still many problems to be overcome in the quality assurance of middle and low-end products.
