More than 300 Robot manufacturers from around the world have gathered in Shanghai for the China International Robot Show, where the latest technologies are being showcased at the 4-day event.

The robots at the show are certainly proving an entertainment, but the overall message is that they are capable of serious industrial and educational tasks.

Chinese makers are still in the early stages of making high-tech robots.

But Stefan Lampa, chairman of the board of management from KUKA Roboter, believes China is catching up.

"We see a lot of interesting technologies coming now in China. I think in the beginning they were very much looking at the big four or five robot companies and trying to follow them. But now we see some cutting edge innovations coming also from Chinese companies, and we welcoming that. It will help the wider robot industry, so all robot manufacturers to utilize and sell more robots."

Although there are several thousand robot manufacturers in China, they've not been in the industry long and rely heavily on imported technology.

Those companies only take up about 10 percent of China's market share and only a dozen Chinese companies have developed their own core technologies.
